This pullover top drapes beautifully around the neck and it's fun, fast and easy to make. By choosing just the right knit fabric, it will take you anywhere from the boardroom to the beach. Only 3 pattern pieces to cut plus about 1½ hours for construction and you have a fabulous addition to any wardrobe.
I have been pleased with all the Islander patterns that I have, however I haven't made this one yet. I'm sure it will not disappoint. The Islander Patterns come with a "Manual", not just a few vague instructions like some other pattern companies. Their instructions lead you step-by-step through the sewing process, and give you all the Islander Sewing Techniques as well. Buy it, you will love it! Mary Maychruk on 20th Nov 2017
I bought this pattern to make tops that would look great under jackets. I make one and discovered some fitting issues and some sewing issues. Mainly, I am full busted and the front hem road up. Also, the single knit I used occasionally was eaten by my machine which caused damage to the fabric.
Janet Pray (herself!) answered my email and provided wonderful suggestions for altering the pattern slightly and fabric choice. I plan to make a revised version soon with the fabric Janet recommended. Mimi on 27th Jun 2017
My blouse turned out very nice, I bought this pattern because I wanted to understand the burrito method. The instructions are wonderful very clear with great illustrations.
Thank you for your teaching.

I love this pattern. It just arrived a few days ago and I've made 2 shirts already. It is easy to modify the pattern for fit and sews up quickly and easily! I've received many compliments on the shirts that I've already made. Hoping to make a variety for summer wear! Thanks Janet!!! LeeAnn on 2nd Jun 2017
Love the top, but haven't sewn it yet Unknown on 30th May 2017
Very happy with the way this garmet turned out! Janet's methods give results comprable to ready to wear. It is the first Islander I have made and I am very happy with the blouse and the directions. Took a couple of times to roll the burrito collar correctly, will be much easier next time. I had never staystitched knits before - had best luck using a stretch stitch rather than staystich used for woven fabrics. P. Roth on 25th May 2017
