I didn’t really like an inexpensive top that I bought recently but I liked the style, so I made a paper pattern from it so that I could copy it. I found a pretty shimmery purple stretch knit fabric in my stash that was just waiting to be made into something like this top.I had fun trying to figure out how to put this thing together. The seam at the underarm and side was a bit complicated to figure out. (this is actually a sleeved top – not a cape). This is my first time making a garment with stretch knit , It was a good learning experience and I probably will make more of these.
