Orange Cowel Neck ITY Knit Split Sleeve Top

I found this tie-die looking skirt at Beall's Outlet and I knew I had fabric to make a top or two to coordinate with it.

This orange knit was from Fabric Mart Fabric in a FREE bundle!  2 yards of beautiful knit in my favorite color!

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.

Split sleeve

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.
