Hello, I am trying to figure out a section and wanted to know if you can give a little more information. I have sewn the middle sections of the straps together, but I am lost after that. I turn each piece right side out, then I match the center back and front seams together. Am I just stitching the section where the V is, because if I stitch all the way around I don't see how I can it back out with the right sides out. This is my third sewing project. So, I may be skewing the directions totally. Any further clarification on this section would be appreciated.- Angela

I absolutely love this style of top and want to try sewing knits. I see that "fits most" means about 36" bust. I am about 38D-40D (depending on bra style). Would I add the extra measurements to just the side seams, or do I need to adjust the underarm edges too?
I especially love that this top would cover bra straps since I have to wear one and finding clear strap bras for tanks is useless. THANK you!

I think it depends where your fullness lies. If you are smaller above the bust, which it suggests you are because of the D cup size, then you could probably leave all of the straps the same and simple increase the amount of fabric in the body of the blouse. Try cutting the pattern piece vertical from top to bottom in 2 or 3 places across the width, moving the pieces apart a little and then filling back in to get the shape. Then simple gather them to fit the straps. Having more gathering will give you more room in front. It might be a bit of trial and error. You might only want to increase the front, and leave the back the same. You could also slightly increase the depth of the side area that goes from the strap under the arm. Knits are pretty forgiving, but still, do pin it all together and try before sewing just in case. I hope this helps.

Think you for the great pattern! I'm having trouble placing the neckline to the main piece. My neckline looks just like your pic, but in can't figure how to get the raw edges together without having the "v"s going in opposite directions while staying right sides together. Any thoughts as to where I'm going wrong?

Its very hard to tell from your description Sharon. In the pattern instructions you should find my email address, or if not, you can contact me via the site at http://so-sew-easy.com. If you can send me a photo or two I'll hopefully be better able to help out. Deb

It was really easy to put together, and the only alteration I had to make was take in the armholes a bit, since I'm a petite. Thanks for such a cute pattern.

Why do I keep getting re-directed back to this page when I click on "download" for the pattern? I don't see any way to download, nor do I see a "pattern". Am I missing something?

You need to add it to your cart and check out then you'll find it in your pattern library. I've done a youtube video to show you how to do this - http://youtu.be/wasJ2xSBYS4. If you still have problems, drop over to So Sew Easy (http://so-sew-easy.com) and send me an email and I'll see if I can help you.

I'm not sure what you mean? You just want to look at the pattern but not download or print it? If you can tell me more about what you are hoping to do, I'll see if I can help. You can see a visual of the pattern pieces on the original blog post if that helps - that's here - http://so-sew-easy.com/free-sewing-pattern-drape-top/
But if you want to make the top, you'll certainly need to print the pattern and use it to cut out the fabric.
