Here is my version! It is made from a very soft and light weight cotton flannel. I would certainly like to emphasise the light weight of the fabric, because I think this pattern would be unsuitable for anything mid-heavy weight. The seams that go across the shoulders may get too bulky and uncomfortable in a heavier woven. Think cotton lawn, double gauze, voile or similar for a successful outcome.
The changes I made compared to the magazine construction was to cut the shoulder gussets on the bias for a shoulder hugging fit and I sewed the neck/shoulder seams on the inside of the garment rather than the outside.
In the magazine I instruct you to sew the seam on the outside and cover it with a decorative tape. You can't really see it in the below picture because it's cream cotton ribbon on a cream stripe, but it's there and it helps to stabilise the jersey.
I simply sewed mine on the inside, over locked and top stitched down.
Of course they weren't the only changes as I added length to the sleeves and the body, but I'm going to shorten the body back to the original pattern guidance as I would prefer it more cropped!
So there you have it, a woven sailors top and it's mighty comfy! I really love this check at the moment, don't you?
