Description

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.

    I just love this top/tunic you have sewn using the Merchant and Mills pattern. The use of denim is a great idea for this pattern rather than a knit. Although winter is quite a few months away, I think I will order this pattern and go and buy some Ponti or heavy merino to make it in. Thanks for the inspiration. I have just recently made the Merchant and Mills Panel dress and I am so happy with it. It was easy to sew with some really good tips for construction which I hadn’t used before.
