Washington, Dc, ...
I made this top using the Top 64 pattern from Merchant & Mills. The designer says it’s inspired by the fisherman’s top, but I chose to make it up in a lightweight denim for more of a tunic and less of a sweater feel. I think it would work equally well in a ponte knit or even a substantial sweater knit.
It was an easy sew and the only change I made was to finish the neckline with bias tape instead of a neck facing, which is just personal preference. I love the pockets and topstitching and the minimal feel, without too much fancy detailing or fastenings.
