Of course, I am not so arrogant to think that I would sew this up properly the first time around, so I grabbed some drapey knit to make a practice top. Which was a HUGE mistake. Ugh! When will I learn to be more thoughtful about fabric choices?
#2 - YOU CANNOT CUFF LIGHTWEIGHT KNIT. Duh. I knew that, but I was temporarily insane, apparently.
#3 - Without the bulk of the sweatshirt knit, this top is too big.
I will have to make a new muslin with some scraps of sweatshirt that I have lying around, and see how it goes. There will definitely be a few tweaks to the fit -shoulders, sleeves, and side seams, but I think the heavier fabric will be MUCH easier to work with for this pattern.
