This is a sleeveless, knit top with a V-neckband, pleats around the front neckband, and gathered front side seams. All I wanted was a quick knit top after months of couture wedding sewing, and what happens? My overlocker jams while I was fixing a threading issue, and because the upper looper jammed against another part of the machine and bent, it cost me two weeks without an overlocker, £30 in parts (ouch, Bernina!) and another £30 in labour to fix it. It really is a great, simple pattern, but the pleats at the neckline and the side-seam gathers make it really very flattering indeed. I’ll definitely be coming back to this one once it gets warmer for a good one metre pattern!

The dotty cotton/lycra knit fabric was an add-on from eFabrics.co.uk to get the minimum order value while I was buying the flannel underlining for my wedding gown . I bought one metre of it for £3.85 so this was a ridiculously cheap blouse, even for high street standards!
