MBM - Style Arc Evie
I wrote in my last post, my 2015 wrap-up, that I tend to sew to plug holes in the wardrobe. The latest identified hole has been sleeveless tops to wear under jackets and cardigans.
To that end, here’s a nifty little sleeveless top pattern, Style Arc’s Evie, for knits.
The only alteration I made to this pattern was to make an FBA. That’s it.
One other thing about this pattern is that it is the first knit pattern I’ve come across that instructs you to make a machine blind hem. I quite like a blind hem, and having done as I was told on this make, am a bit puzzled why it’s not used more often on knits. It worked really well here, and gets around the issue of tunnelling that you sometimes get when you use a twin needle on knits.
Style Arc Evie – a useful workhorse pattern. I’ve got some white cotton knit to make another soon.
With the Liesl + Co Girl Friday culottesStay tuned for Tessuti Kate, a sleeveless top pattern for wovens, which I have just muslined up to wear as a pj top…
