Polly tank top


































I made this using the "Polly" top pattern from By Hand London pattern company.  It's a free pdf
download.   Here's the link to the site:  By Hand London patterns.  You print it off and tape the sections together.   It seems daunting the first time you try it, but it's really not hard.  It's like putting a puzzle together.   I made a mistake when taping the pattern back together, so I had to add a panel up the back.  But I actually like how it turned out.























This is a great pattern.  Every piece fits together well and the sizing is accurate.  It's quick and simple to make, but very cute and a little different.




I like the rounded hemline.  If I make it again, I would raise the front neckline as it's a little bit low on me.  I like making and wearing woven pullovers, so it's great to have another pattern for one.

  5. I think you're right. It is cute and I'd like to see the front scoop raised also. Perhaps I should get the pdf. Thanks for this information, Ms. Beverly.

    Cheers,
