Knit top

I started Simplicity 1716 yesterday, and finished it today. It's made of a very light-weight cotton knit that I bought a couple of years ago from Hancock's, I believe. I wasn't sure if I'd like it and how it would work, but I love it! The pattern is interesting, easy, and modest, and the fabric is just right for summer coolness.

I did the sleeve from view C.


Total yards used: 1 1/2.

That's a nice top. Want to hear something funny? I'm using that same pattern to make view "F".

You and Beverly are going to have to compare notes:)

It is a pretty top - the drape neck is lovely. Not sure how you manage to use your phone to take the photo's - I always get things back to front and tangled up :)
