Turned out super cute and comfy for my daughter=in-law's first pregnancy. Used super stretchy fabric for the undershirt so she can breastfeed. May make her a sleeveless version for summer!
Bless my heart, I chose stripes! But it worked out beautifully.
Loved making this top! It comes out so cute and flattering!!
My daughter-in-law loved it
I was hesitant on sewing up the Petal Top with the upside down crossover but it was easier than I thought it would be. Since I'm 37 weeks pregnant I based my size off my bust measurement and it turned out to be a good decision. It fits great even with my growing belly. I used a double brushed poly for the main fabric and a burnout jersey as the front panel. I love it so much!
However, I do have two complaints about the pattern. I really, really dislike working with a 1/4" seam allowance. I usually have to add the extra seam allowance when I'm tracing the pattern to at least have 3/8".
My other complaint is that the armscye is cut a little too curvy and makes the top bunch a little in a certain area. I've altered my pattern piece to fix it but I haven't made a second top yet but I will soon. My little complaints aren't enough to keep me from making several more Petal Tops or stop using Ellie and Mac patterns. I've been buying E&M patterns for years and will continue to do so but I do hope they give us more seam allowance in the future.
Awesome pattern. Excellent instructions!!!
Nice easy sew, good access for nursing.
