I was recently working on a knit top that just needed something to make it more interesting, so this is what I came up with after getting some inspiration from a shirt I saw on ModCloth.

Technique Materials

Strip of knit fabric, t-shirt, sewing machine

    Could you leave the edges unfinished? I don’t have a serger, so I’m wondering if it would still work sans an overlock stitch?

      I don’t see why not. Knits don’t fray like woven fabrics do—depending on how you cut it, the edges might curl a little, but that might look pretty cool! If you try it this way, I’d love to see the results!

    I love this t-shirt pattern, with the darts! Where did you get it or did you make it yourself? ;) Sooooo beautiful!

      It’s a modified version of a t-shirt in one of the Burda pattern magazines (June 2009)—used the lining piece and darted it to imitate princess seams. (This was originally my test version, and I liked the color too much to just toss it after I figured out how to work it!)
