This pattern has been in my pattern stash, ignored and unloved since 2011 when it was a free gift with Sew magazine, its been quite a hit with sewing community, and I can understand why, easy to sew and easy to wear.
I really want to improve my skill and feel confident sewing with jersey/knits on my sewing machine (I don’t have an overlocker) so this pattern seemed ideal, a wrap top or dress with raglan sleeves.
I used a size 14 for the shoulder area grading out to a 16 for the seams. I also cut about 3 inches off the bottom.
All sewn up on my sewing machine using a ballpoint needle and a stretch stitch.
Top stitched with a twin ballpoint needle.
While waiting for the twin needle to be delivered, and being impatient I stitched the hem of the wrap section with a fancy stretch stitch, but I wish I had waited for the twin needle, which I feel would have looked better.
Browsing the internet looking for a suitable buckle for this top I couldn’t resist this little lot found on Ebay
