Knit Top Success!!

I'm so excited that this top turned out well! I have had so many garments not turn out, that I feel like I'm finally getting better at sewing. This is Simplicity 1916 Misses Knit Top. The fabric is from Fabric Mart (of course, right!?) It was a remnant piece from last year and is not available online anymore. Although you may not be able to see it, there are pleats at the bust and gathers under the bust. It has 3/4 length sleeves and is so comfortable. I could make this shirt out of 10 different knit prints! I also was able to get a really nice double stitch on the hem without a double needle. 

I finished the top tonight and immediately cut out another top from the same pattern. The next top will have no sleeves, or short sleeves--not sure which I will do yet-- because the fabric has a flaw I need to work around. I definitely recommend this pattern to anyone. It is easy and is also flattering. I


  1. Love the top - great fabric - good job.

  2. I was interested in this pattern. I like that there are numerous options. Great top by the way.
