    I love this top. I’ve made three of them. It’s the comfort of wearing a T-shirt only much elevated and fashionable.

    Instead of doubling the front, I drafted a facing piece so that I could fit it onto some one yard cuts that I already had. I used some power mesh for the facing on my white one so that the facing shadow wouldn’t show through. Watch the tutorial on how to sew the front and back together if you find the directions a bit mystifying.

    I’ve made 3 of these – it’s a really nice shape which is smart enough to wear for work, but casual enough for leisure.

    I have no idea why it is constructed with a double front though – I just cut a neck facing to get the same line/effect at the neck, and it makes construction much easier (esp around the arms), and uses a LOT less fabric.

    I agree with other comments about the arms – I make an adjustment to the side seam to make the arm opening a lot smaller.

    As others have noted the armholes are a little long/gaped. I don’t mind it gives a nice extended shoulder look. If you do mind, consider an adjustment in the armhole

    I made a facing instead of doubling the fabric at the front and this worked out well. It stays in place because I stitched down the facing at the back by topstitching the back shoulder/neck seam.

    I pretty much only sew Stylearc patterns and this is another great addition to my wardrobe.

    I have been eyeing off the Como knit top for a while.
    I like the neckline as it makes the top a bit different to a normal T.
    There is a tutorial for the construction of neckline on Style Arc website which is great because the pattern instructions are minimal. (my preference is for more instructions as I am not an experienced sewer)
    I am happy with the result and the 3 adjustments I made was shortening the length and I also took an inch out of the upper body as the sleeve hole looked too big/long and other sewers had recommended that adjustment.
    I also made the lining out of a plain colour knit as my fabric was patterned and was a touch sheer and I felt it would ‘muddy’ the front if I didn’t. (This tip that was mentioned in the tutorial)
    I find it well worth reading reviews, looking at other peoples end results and watching tutorials of the garment I am going to make as my end result is better because I have researched.
    I will definitely make more Como tops. 🙂

    I made the Como top in a cotton spandex jersey. It is a clever pattern which comes together well. It was rather tricky making sure the double layered front was completely smooth but I mostly managed it! I didn’t interface the neckline and I now wish I did! I am pleased with how it turned out – more stylish than your average t shirt.

    Love the shape of this top. The extended sleeve is a great feature. the shape of the bodice makes the top easy to wear and is complimentary on the bust.

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
