Among the excitement of dresses and jumpsuits, it's easy to forget hard-working wardrobe staples like the humble knit top. I don't actually wear dresses or jumpsuits all the time with nice skirts or trousers, one needs tops...
I have a lot or variaty for winter but for summer, not so much. Mostly simple t-shirts and vests I've had for years (some even RTW instead of me-made!).
It was just time for another comfortable-yet-slightly-fancy top. One suitable for summer weather.
So, I made this one.
It's got something sort of like Pattern Magic's twist. Both halves for the top front are in fact one piece which forms a loop at the top, the collar/off shoulder sleeve is also one piece which is threaded through that loop and then inserted into that high back piece.
I made it so that attaching the 'sleeves' to the back was the last step, which allowed me to fit the width of the collar/sleeves to my shoulders.
The light in my living room is rather directional, so I also made this picture of the top on the table to show that twist properly. (oh, and as usual, it's my own design and I drafted the pattern)
