Simplicity 2892

I had a bit of the leopard blue print left, so I made another top from this Simplicity pattern.


I have made this before here at Pattern Review  and  blogged here and a white one, blogged here

So here is this one


I used self-fabric to make a neckband.  Didn't want to use facings as the pattern instructed, especially on a knit.  Plus the top is loose, so the neckband helps to pull the neckline closer to the body.




Here it is with the Jalie cardigan and a belt.

  1. Love this fabric! It's perfect for the simple shape of the top.

    I have never sewn with Jalie patterns, but I may need to make that cardigan. It looks like such a wear-with-everything piece.

  2. Seeing this fabric on it's own I probably wouldn't have gave a second look but this top/cardigan is a great look

  6. I think it looks great together. You are making some great tops lately. You will be ready for the spring. I hope you are going somewhere warm to wear them before spring-or maybe your temps are fine! Great looks Lori!
