Loosely fitted knit top with gathers along the right side seam and the sleeves. The “interesting volume” on this pattern is lost on the knit top pictured on the model, and to tell you the truth, it’s almost lost on me, too. Perhaps cut the elastic shorter? This is the second project using the same fabric from the knit top with a deep front pleat.
I think it works fine. But my SIL tells me to stop buying four yards of one fabric, because I end up with a uniform looking wardrobe. OK, sis. Will do.
I didn’t follow the instructions to use a ribbon for the back neckline. Instead I used a facing, did a stitch-and-flip, I think, for a clean finish. I also did not finish the hems. With this type of jersey, I think not.
This project is based on a BS pattern.
Website won’t allow me to add a “based on” BS pattern entry. I’d be thankful for pointers or reasons why that’s happening.
And how does one insert a hyperlink inside a paragraph?
burn-out jersey knit, cotton blend; clear elastic
