Ruched T from the Fabulous Angela Wolf

I finally made up this pattern a couple of weeks ago, and Central Texas finally got cold enough for me to wear it last week.
I used a lightweight sweater knit in a charcoal heather grey. I'm not sure of the content, but suspect at least some acrylic.

I love this pattern--only 4 pattern pieces regardless of which view you make (front, back, sleeve and collar)
I also like the format of the instructions: a spiral bound book that lays nicely and doesn't take up much room. The instructions are really good with detailed drawings, and information on various ways to finish seams.

Most importantly, I love my new top:

I can't wait to sew up Angela's jeans pattern.

Also watch for Angela on sewing events -- she is a great instructor and has lots of great tips and tricks.

Happy Sewing!

PS: I almost forgot about Angela's new clapper. These have gotten hard to find, but are really invaluable for getting nice flat seams. Hers are good quality hardwood.
And here is a video of Angela showing how to use a clapper.
