Description

This is my adaptation of Burda’s 01/2011 Long knit top. I added some elastic to the sides to gather it to accommodate my increasing belly. The crinkle fabric hides my sewing flaws well! It was a nightmare to sew with as my machine did not like it. The pattern was not clearly marked for sizes so I just guessed which would work.

Sorry for the horrible pics, I’ll try to post clearer ones soon.

      The elastic is 13 1/2 in long but you can go shorter for more gather. I started it 3 in from the unfinished bottom hem and about 5 in from the arm hole. Just measure her and see where her belly starts!
