Description

Hi, I loved making this top. First project of the year! The pattern in the magazine uses leather but I chose a heavy-ish jersey knit. It was so quick to put together, especially on a rainy afternoon! I used bias binding for the neckline and sleeve hems. I have used a hook and eye for fastening but it keeps undoing so I will stick a button on. I just over locked the bottom edge as a proper hem looked a bit bulky. Have worn it all day and feels great.

Material Notes

Jersey knit, bias binding
