Knit tops.... got to love them

I love the ease and instant gratification from knit tops.

I had traced out Butterick 5283 awhile back but did not know what fabric I wanted to use. I found a the perfect knit hiding in my stash. It was a Georgeous Fabrics find a few months back. This close fitting pullover top is another take on the twist front. I made view B with 3/4 length sleeves. The upper portion is self faced, so a bulky knit might not work as well. I think this would be most flattering on a larger chest, but I am still very happy with it.

This was just one of 3 knits tops I made so far this weekend. If I can get pics, I will post the other two.

Rock On!
Edited to add the Vogue 8451 tops I also created this weekend...
Black and white top is V8451 View A with sleeves from B5283 and my own ruffles.
Black and multi flowered top is also V8451 view A.

Rock On!

  1. These are great looking tops! I also just bought the Jalie jeans pattern and am anxious to give it a try. Yours look very good.
