I sewed three tops from one two-pieced pattern., one without and two with a “cutout” or wide keyhole front, which is trending now. This pattern is not only ideal for beginners and/or those who are new to knits, but also a wonderful way to use fabric remnants of previous projects.
For a smoother finish, I used bias strips in the corresponding fabrics to finish the necklines and armscyes.

First version: leopard spots-printed matte jersey leftover from a knit dress
Second version: boldly colored satiny polyester
Third version: “botanically” printed stretch cotton woven leftover from a short jacket and a .peplum top
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
