    Maritime Knit top
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 09/02/2016
    This is a great pattern. Super fit and very well written instructions with great tips even for experienced sewers. I downloaded the pattern and after experimenting with some cheap fabric was able to select the size to print that made the best fit for me. I already had bought the Gallery Tunic & Dress in hard format and was so impressed decided to try the Maritime top. So far I have made three tops and can't wait to receive my Coverlock machine from Janome to make my hemming more authentic.

    I like the fit

    Experimenting with different weights of knits. I finished a top in a sheer chartreuse on gray stripe and the fit is comfy and flattering. Fiddled with the neck finishing in a second top with a slightly heavier knit. Instead of a facing, I attached a folded binding. I will probably make a third.

    Great top

    I may have made a size too big because it was baggier than normal and the 3/4 sleeves weren't quite where they should be; I will have to shorten them.

    But great pattern and easy to make!

    I printed the A0 file at a local copy shop so can't comment on how this assembles. So nice to have the option to print at a copy shop.

    I've made three versions of this top in the 3/4 sleeve and I'm happy with all of them. The instructions are very thorough and easy to follow. The neck facing looks extremely professional in comparison to bias bindings etc.

    I agree with others that this was by far the easiest PDF pattern I have assembled. The directions are well written but I did have to search the pattern in order to find the seam allowance. This pattern produces very professional results. My top fits great! I will make this pattern again.

    Very good pattern!

    This was by far the best PDF pattern I ever cut and taped together! The signs where to cut are so helpful!
    The measurements showed my, that the pattern is not made for pear figureds like me, so I graded to a wider size at the hips.
    However, there is one big mistake I made! I read all the general instructions where there is indicated a seam allowance of 1/4" (speaking of children patterns, in addition). I wondered but sewed it like this. When finished, I noticed that, at another place, the seam allowance is indicated as 1/2"! My knit has a good drape so the wider top is very nice. Next time, I will sew with the SA of 1/2", though.

    This is the first time I have used a Liesl + Co. Pattern. I have heard great things about these patterns and I was not disappointed. This was by far the easiest PDF pattern I have put together, I love the grid, it really helps line up the pages correctly. The instructions are great, very clear and easy to follow. I like the techniques used on this top, they produce a very nice top that is more than just a basic t-shirt. I know I will get a lot of use out of this pattern!

    I made up the 3/4 sleeve top in St. James knit and was very happy with the way the top sewed up. It was straight forward and it looks just like the picture. The sizing was true to my measurements.I wear it a lot! Perfect with jeans and capri's. My 2 daughters have asked me to make them the same top in different colors. I highly recommend this pattern, it is a classic. I will sew it again I am sure.
