This sewing pattern is suitable for sewing enthusiasts with intermediate skills. In order to create this garment you must know how to sew with knit fabrics, ease curved edges to fit, and operate a serger. Easy to understand step-by-step instructions with full colour photos are included in this download.
This pattern requires knit fabric with a minimum 25% stretch across grain.
Also note that I used the bodice fabric to make the neckband. If you are a hardcore ribbing fan, then go for it, you might have to reduce the width on the bands and cuffs to make up for the extra stretch.
I did all of my sewing using a domestic sewing machine and serger. If you have a coverstitch, please feel free to use that, but it's not necessary. However, a serger is highly recommended. I've made knit tops using only a sewing machine in the past, and even with the stretch stitch setting, the stitching around the neck and waistbands still breaks right away. Use a serger!!
