oversized knit striped top

I had gotten some really cheap knit material from Hancock a while back. It is this weird T-shirt material with stripes, except the stripe is not horizontal, or vertical, or even 45 degrees to the selvage. But it was only a dollar a yard, so I thought – what the heck. Its pretty perfect for me to use to try out the pattern. I had cut the front and back patterns not on a fold so that I can achieve a slight chevron striped look, which is actually quite flattering. I also made sure to match the stripes between the front and the back pattern pieces. I forgot to match the sleeves, but i think it looks fine.

I used an XS on the pattern (McCall 6205 ), even though with my current measurement I should really be a medium. Perhaps my knit material is more stretchy than they expected. Also, I had to chop off a lot of materials on the long back — otherwise the back seam reaches almost to my knees!

Other than those, I think I might use this pattern again after I find myself some thicker knit to work with — sweater time!
