Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? A pale blue cotton jersey knit

What are you most proud of? The fabric is good quality, it was given to me along several other knit pieces, so I feel like I have a beautiful top of better quality than I could afford to buy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Listen to teacher about checking your neck band on this top. I made mine a little smaller. Not hemmed yet as I was unable to find a ball point double needle locally.

I measured my pattern before cutting and found the fit to be a negative ease. Not my style . So I added wearing ease and a flare at the bottom like the hoodie, adds a nice drape. I love the neck line! Very comfortable to wear!

Very nice! I don't know if this will help, I always use a Schmetz Universal size 80/12 needle. I rarely have to change to a ball point. Your neck band looks really good. Thanks for sharing.
