After I had read and re-read the sewing instructions I started by tracing and cutting the pattern pieces. Only 4 pieces, a front, a back and two sleeves how difficult could this be??
There were a few adjustments to be made to the pattern pieces - I should mention that I was making the Boat Neck Top. The patterns that come with Gerties book are all adaptable according to which garment you are making, so for the Boat Neck Top I used the pieces for the Knit Sweetheart Top but using different sleeves and adjusting the neckline. I had to raise the front neckline and redraw the back neckline to match.
