New Look 6807

The inspiration (from this post):


My version:

A light, swingy top made from some stash jersey and New Look 6807. After reading the reviews of this top on Pattern Review, I raised the neckline a bit before cutting. I'm glad I did, otherwise I think this top would be too low cut for my comfort. I also lengthened and narrowed the sleeves.

I omitted the tie in the back neckline. I like the tie detail on the pattern, but I didn't want to add any more fuss to this busy print.

Pattern: New Look 6807
Fabric: Jersey from my stash (and I still have enough to make another top)
Modifications: Raised neckline, narrowed and lengthened sleeves, omitted back neck tie
Result: I really like this top and will probably make it again in a solid color.

  5. Stephanie, that looks fantastic!! I could use some serious pointers on sewing a knit fabric. I've tried it before, but to no avail. The knit I had was a little thick, and wouldn't stop curling at the edge. And I know you lose stretch if you sew with a straight stitch, but I'm not sure how else to make it work. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    (And all this from the girl who's also going to sew her own wedding dress! Knit's just make me so terribly nervous!)

  6. I love the neckline and the shape of the sleeves. Are they a little bit wider at the wrist?
