Description

Using the Port Elizabeth Top pattern (my TNT), I extended the hemline to make a shift. The belt is fake and purely for visual interest.The neckline has been extended into a wide funnel perfect for wearing a roll neck pullover underneath.

Material Notes

Wool and viscose knit, black and grey buttons.

    What a fun way to change the top! I like the pleats in the front.

    Interesting that this pattern is a TNT for you. I tried it and it was awful on me! I think I cut the wrong size, though, so perhaps another run at it would be in order.

    Great job!

      Toni, in a woven I have to make all sorts of adjustments, but in a knit it just works for me!
