Yesterday I had mentioned that I started work on the Made for Mermaid’s Sweater Top & Tunic, and before the day was out, I was finished!

I went with an off-the-shoulder style with 3/4 sleeves and a tunic length. The construction is pretty straightforward, but be aware that since this is an off the shoulder design, the sleeves will be attached a bit differently on one side (the upper portion of the sleeve cap does not attach to the shirt at all), which may make this a more confusing part of putting this top together. There are plenty of photographs along the way that can help, so I wouldn’t shy away from this pattern if you’re interested.

The fit is nice – it’s not body hugging, but it’s not bulky like a sweatshirt either and the arms are fitted, but not tight. The tunic length is pretty long – perfect for leggings or if you’re looking to scrunch up the top some, but I think if I make this again, I’d make the top.
