this knit top is made from mccalls 6078. i really like this pattern because it’s a great layering piece that you can make out of a crazy print or a solid color. as always, i take issue with the pattern instructions for finishing necklines, hems etc. the pattern has you turn a 5/8" SA and top stitch. if you’ve ever tried to do this, you’ll know how ridiculous it is. so i did more of a bias facing type treatment and topstitched. much cleaner and much easier to do!
