Notes 1. Lekala pattern = this was my first pattern with Lekala and for the most part it is a good pattern as far as my skeletal structure (fits my narrow shoulders and short arms and short waist) EXCEPT, my full bust is 46" and my under bust/rib cage is 37.5", so I still had to do a FBA. I need more coverage and this style doesn't account for that.
2. Fabric = I used a knit and I think it's an interlock knit - I love the fabric (purchased for CDN$1/metre but I'm not sure what it is) - it keeps its shape and returns back to shape and doesn't pill, and it suits this pattern. I have lots of it and I'm going to try another Lekala top with this fabric.
3. Directions = I made this in August and I just winged it. I would suggest finishing the wrap hem first before sewing the pattern. And, don't forget to follow the notches. Again, I used a sewing machine knit stitch and didn't finish the seams because the fabric doesn't curl or unravel.

I made one with sleeves and one without sleeves and because I really want this style of top and if I can figure out how to add to the bust and bring that empire line lower, I will make many more.
