Happy New Year!
I decided to start the year off with sleeve drama! My first project is a simple yet elegant knit top which elevates basic tops to a new level.
I used the Adrienne Blouse pattern by Friday Pattern Company. I had zero issues with this pattern and I think it is perfect for all levels of sewers. For my first version, I did not make any modifications or hack the pattern in any way.
A few things I like about it are:
- Quick and easy sew – This makes it an awesome pick-me-up especially after a more challenging project. It also makes it a great closet filler for when you need more basics.
- 12 paged PDF – Yes, this PDF pattern is only 12 pages!
- For knits – I can’t believe I used to fear sewing with knits. This pattern requires knit fabrics which are usually more forgiving than wovens in terms of fit.
- Versatility – Depending on the weight of knit used, you get a slightly different look and structure. The top can also be worn off the shoulder or as shown I have worn it in my photos and can be styled in endless ways.
