When is a T-shirt not a T-shirt? When it's a chic knit top
like these, great in medium- weight knits like scuba, interlock
jersey, ITY, lightweight ponte or a silk(y) jersey.
Semi-fitted, pull-on top or tank has a slight swing silhouette
with a fuller, longer back. Top has slim elbow-length sleeves;
the tank version has banded armholes. A self fabric or rib knit
band finishes the 'Ballet' neckline, or make the optional shaped
neckband if your fabric isn't very stretchy; the back neckline is
low but bra-friendly.Top features center front & back seams, plus
horizontal bust darts for a great fit. Sleeves & hem finish with deep
self-fabric bands; contrast topstitching adds an elegant finish.
These work best worn untucked over a slim skirt or pants; a simple
change of fabric gives you a fabulous top for work, for the beach or
on vacation, or for casual-dressy evenings out.
All sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 will need around 21/2 yards
or 229cm fabric; add 1/4 or 23cm knit or tricot interfacing for the shaped
neckband, OR add 1/4 yard/23cm rib knit if you are using a rib knit trim
for the neckline/tank armholes,
That's it! No zippers, buttons, snaps; just fabric...
All fabric allowances are for 60â or 150cm wide fabrics.
This design was made for me!
This pattern went together so sweetly! I think I picked the wrong material though, it didn't flow well. Next time a more "drapey" fabric is a must - I will also lengthen it a bit. A lovely pattern that I simply must try again!
