Description

I used the basic raglan pattern from Built By Wendy Home Stretch for this top. I modified the neckline using the Flashdance top instructions, but didn’t make the neckline as wide (2, rather than 4 inches were removed). I followed the book’s construction method of completing three sleeve seams, finish the neckline, then completing the final seam. It worked perfectly. I traced the size small, but made the sides slightly A-line and the length little longer.

I intended to make this reversible, but one of my top stitched seams was wacky and it was really obvious in the white thread I used. I liked the look of the exposed seams, so I went with it. The side seams are not exposed, I serged the neckline and bottom hem and rolled the sleeves up for contrast.
