This orange knit was from Fabric Mart Fabric in a FREE bundle! 2 yards of beautiful knit in my favorite color!
|Orange ITY Knit|
|TNT Cowl Knit Top Pattern|
I copied my TNT short sleeve pattern, marked the center from hem to sleeve cap, cut, added 3/8" seam allowances and then cut out my sleeve (4 pieces). I hemmed the slit with Steam A Seam 2 Lite then stitched.
Assembling the sleeve, I hand stitched 1-1/2" from at the bottom and top seam allowances on the slit. Sewing the sleeve in flat (my favorite way with knits!) the sleeves were sewn in a jiffy.
Great look with a few minutes spent on a little extra something.
I like the sleeves and the cowl neck. The only thing I a going to work on is the fit at the waist. I think the top looks a little boxy. Easy enough to fix but I will wear it once or twice to see for sure.
