I loved making my Seafarer Top! I was so happy to say yes when Abby (Sew Much Ado) asked if I would join in on her newest patterns blog tour. I know for sure I’ll wear a knit top, so this one was fun to make!
I actually sat down yesterday morning and about 45 minutes later I had a top to wear. And it fits! I think I could have gone up to a Medium (I made the Small), but really, both would work, just depends on how you like the fit.
I love not having to hem knits. I can hem them and it works pretty well, but not having to is even better! And quicker! Abby includes options to use arm bands and a waist band for this pattern and that’s what I chose. I think it gives a really nice finished look.
I used this really soft knit that I had gotten at Hancock Fabrics. I was *this* close to making into a maxi dress or a tunic, but then I figured I’d probably get the most use out of the top. I think I’ll try a tunic version sometime though.
