Simplicity 2804

Pattern Review

: Simplicity 2804

Description: Knit tops and dresses

Sizing: 4 to 22 , I cut a 10 and then took it in some

Instructions: They were easy, I didn’t look at them too much. This is a quick, cute top.

: Fast construction was my first like. The ability to really make it “your own”. I used the sleeves from View B, the band from view C, and the neckline from View D to get the look I wanted. The dislike was the arms are very big, it felt like I had wings!

Changes: I took out 2” from the sleeves. That was the only change.

Fabric: An ITY from

Cute, fun and quick. The photograph doesn’t do it justice. Neither do I, the eyes were closed in this picture. My other choice the old double chin was just too much.

Off to a Christmas party, hubby's business. I was going to wear the cowl sweater, Butterick pattern but it has warmed up today and I will just be too hot.


  1. Oh I love it Lori! That is such pretty fabric too! Enjoy the party tonight. :-)

  2. Lori:
    Cute Top! I have this pattern sitting on my cutting table to make in a turquoise interlock.

    I also picked up that Butterick pattern yesterday (the one with all the purple versions in the picture.)

    we are definitely on the same wavelength

  3. Oh, I love that! I must buy myself that pattern and make a few shirts out of that. Great job on the top, as usual. :)

  4. V. nice! Love the diagonal print.

  5. It looks great! That print is so cool!!
