I love how it turned out. Did you adjust the neckline at all? If so, how did you di it? Thanks.

I did adjust pretty much everything. Craftsy still has not sent my pattern (3 weeks later) so I used one I had that I'd cut too small. I raised the neckline by almost one inch. For the sleeves I used the same pattern piece, just shortened. I did manage to pull a tad too much on one side of the front of the neckband and there's a little puckering there.

Very, very flattering. It fits beautifully. My pattern arrived on Saturday and I will shortly be starting my adventure. It appears that we are close to the same size. Did you do many alterations, especially in the shoulder area?

I had a pattern on hand that I had cut out xs and it was too small so I tried to add enough to make it a 10. I added the least in the shoulders. Skinny armed that I am, I found the cuff of this pattern tiny. I love the cuff less version in the class and slapped my hand to my head when I saw the normal neckband. That makes this a year round pattern.

and... the original neck treatment is really nice for winter.

also! I have not received the pattern but Craftsy has gone above and beyond to make sure I'm compensated. Even Vogue looked into my order. I vote that in the future they offer the pattern as an extra so those of us who want can get our own.
