Long ago I have bought the KwikSew pattern 2740 – Misses’ Tops.
It is VERY simple, strait froward pattern. If you just starting sewing, starting using knit fabrics (jersey, interlock) – this is a perfect pattern for you.
It is so simple that I am ashamed of buying it. It looks like I’ve bought it only to use a paper it is printed on. It is so heavy adjusted to my measurement that there is little left from the original. Still – if you start sewing with jersey – just use this pattern for simple tops.
Together with the fabrics for the French Jacket I have bought this light blue jersey wool. It is a little felted on one side. I had immediately very warm feeling when I touched this fabric.
I decided to make a simple top – perfect addition to skirts for my business attire. I have bought only 80 cm (about 31,5 in). It is just enough to make a top – usually I put a seam at the center back.
I decided to make a sort of turtle neck/waterfall neckline.
Herewith the cut off pattern pieces. You can see what I mean by turtle neck line.
I used the cotton tape to strengthen the shoulder seams.
This is the – almost – final result. I still need to finish the hems. But first I have to try it on.
I like this kind of tops and probably I will make few more – from different fabrics. It is perfect fabric stash killer.
