Here's the back of the collar. I like the little "v" formed when the collar is turned down. The instructions for sewing the "v" in the back were very easy to follow.
The back is about four inches longer than the front. I machine stitched the hem in place by machine, although the instructions call for a blind stitch.
I sewed this top thinking I would wear it with my Simplicity 1070 knit skirt, but I'm not sure I like the proportions.black Sewing Workshop Eureka skirt, but again, I'm not sure I like the two together. I'll probably just wear it with black pants.
I've sewn the Big 4 patterns for so long that I automatically want to sew with a 5/8" seam allowance. I need to remind myself that these Style Arc patterns are designed with 3/8" seam allowance (and 1/4" allowance at the neckline).
The Esme Designer Knit Top has options for long sleeves and a neckband instead of a collar. This is definitely a pattern I'll be using again.
