Kwik Sew 2694

This top is so great. I used an interlock knit from JoAnn's. I am normally not impressed with their selection, but when I saw this, I snagged it. I have other plans for this top pattern - maybe a tunic with leggings for summer? Maybe I'm too old at 45 for that look. What do you think?

Here are the fine details: Pay attention to the length on this top - this is an older pattern that was drafted when shorter tops were in style. Also, the sleeve seems to be tighter than most patterns.

Great pattern instructions.

Pattern modifications: added 1 inch to waist, FIVE inches to bottom of bodice tapering out to a large at the hips. Widened sleeves. Took a tuck form the front neckline = SBA.

Ironed fusible webbing around neckline and for all hems. Coverstitched around neckline and hems.

Very easy pattern pattern. I will definitely make it again.

The top is really nice and flatters you. I love the pattern and plan on purchasing it myself. Thanks for the tips.

My sister and I both love this pattern as well.
Your dress and top look great!
