The Contrast Polka Dot Top
+ + +
So apparently my camera hates bright teal and bright red together, and it threw off the colors and the white balance, and I had a hard time photographing this even in broad daylight.
It’s been a busy past week for me this week with Fashion Week, but I had some time to work on this project towards the end of the week. The pieces looked complicated to me so I read all the directions as I went along. It came together pretty easily.
This is one of the brightest tops that I own, and I like it a lot. It’s very comfortable.

MISSES’ TOPS: Pullover tops A, B, C, D have neckline and sleeve variations, upper front and back in one (no shoulder seams) and narrow stitched hems; top A has contrast lower front and back.
0-18. I made a size 12 in View A.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that it’s a knit pattern and that I could use two different types of knits.
Teal polka-dot cotton knit jersey, red knit jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. I think I did make a mistake by over-gathering the top bodice part, but I can live with it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I really want a long-sleeved version for the Fall/Winter.
I really like it! Very comfortable to wear.
