M6964 Complete


I finally finished the knit top-M6964.  It was not a difficult top to sew; I read the instructions before starting the project.  If you have made many simple knit tops then you pretty much sew on autopilot as I did with this top.

Adjustments I made were:

  • FBA of 1 inch
  • 5/8 inch high upper round back adjustment
  • 5/8 forward shoulder adjustment
  • swayback and shortened the overall back length by one inch
  • reducing the length of the top by one inch and sewing a one inch hem.
The fabric used for the bodice was a nice knit from EOS and the black sleeves and neckband are a burnout type knit from I think Fabric.com.  It was a little difficult to handle but worked out okay.

Here are a few shots of the finished top.  I plan to use this pattern again for more simple t's.

  2. Nice! The P&P patterns are great for instructions. Only the other day I was going through old patterns and found one from early 80,s. The instructions were great - even had how to do a french seam!
