This pattern is intended for light-medium weight drapey knit fabrics with at least 30% stretch – like rayon spandex, brushed poly/spandex, sweater knits, ITY, etc. For my first tester top, I used a VERY lightweight rayon/spandex and it pulled and stretched so much that it affected the fit – it was way too loose and the neckline drooped. (see crappy phone pic below!)

So for that reason, I suggest using knits that are closer to medium weight 🙂  Once I sewed up the same size in a brushed poly/spandex, the fit was much better. You live & you learn right!?
