Having tried it on I am now in a position to advise and caution you – if you don’t stand with your hands on your hips the entire time of wearing this top the voluminous front flops forwards and hides all the meticulous pleating that is wrapped around the hips. It is also nearly impossible to lift (even move) your arms and you lose the entire bottom half of the sleeve. It just looked like I had taken 3m of jersey and slung it round my neck – absolutely shapeless.
So, unless you perpetually stand like this…..
Second stage is to wear it tucked in….
I am also convinced that not only do you need instructions to make this top, you also need instructions on how to put it on and wear it!
And here is the rest of the 6-PAC. Tones of duck-egg blue and taupe. Though I did cheat and pulled the wool camel trousers out of the wardrobe (made last winter) to make up the six pieces. Sorry!
And if I didn’t have enough to figure out with this DK top, I’ve got the blouse from V1324 cut out and ready to start and it comes with another front piece the size of Montana.
