Simplisity 2850 Again

I have made this pattern three times before - here and here and my favorite

So I pulled this pattern out for a fourth time, cut it out and went to sewing, the fabric was from Needle Nook, my latest shipment to land at my door. I was suppose to meet Anne (Needle Nook owner) on Wednesday. She was passing through my area, returning home after teaching out east. She calls me at work and usually I can get off and meet her, but not this Wednesday. Talk about disappointing, I had my new top on and everything!

I did get pictures before I went to work, not great pictures. The details of this top are so nice in this pattern. Gathered neckline, wide neckband, great sleeves. So here is the line drawing.

I made the sleeves from the dress with the elastic. I took pictures with the sleeves up and down, but my photographer cut off the sleeves when they were down! Cute either way, I will add a bit of length next time I make the long sleeve version.

Here it is, doesn't photograph the best in a print but this is a very flattering knit top. Just look at the built in shaping at the waist in the line drawing.


  1. I must buy this pattern! I've been on the hunt for just this look and your review confirms I need it. :) Great top!

  2. Lori, you look great in your new top! This colour works very well with your complexion - you are radiant.
    (I'm considering buying this top too, after seeing your wonderful results with it!)

  3. Cute top! I think that pattern would make a beautiful LBD !

  4. Sigh. Now why can't my knit tops turn out as great as yours?!

  5. That is soooo cute! I have eyed that pattern for a while - guess I'll be getting that one at the next sale too. You're such an enabler. ;-)

  6. I've enjoyed "meeting" you and just contacted Needle Nook for fabric suggestions.
