— TOP TOP
After I have finished the lavender shawl I still had a 60 cm of a jersey left.
It was just enough to make a close fitted top for which I used my standard pattern for knitted fabrics. I needed to make a seam at the back – well, you have to compromise somewhere.
I decided to finish the edges as in the shawl – I crocheted the sleeves and bottom hem.
It is very easy, comfortable and warm (wool bland) top. I am sure I will wear it a lot this autumn/winter. I tested it today – PASS!
— FLOP TOP
I have finished as well a top from mustard colour jersey based on the Vogue pattern 8649.
I love the colour but the pattern is NO! NO! NO!
I changed (adjusted) the back of the pattern – I eliminated gathering at the back centre and I am glad I have done it – this is much suitable for knitted fabrics.
Instead of shaped bottom part I have made a double folded band – better.
However I left the front top part unchanged – MISTAKE!
I will have to make few adjustments there … and make the sleeves a little shorter – which is a minor and easy issue to fix.
