I drafted a knit top inspired by Hot Patterns HP 1021 Riviera Annisette Dress & Top. When I draft a new pattern, I trace a copy of my TNT t-shirt pattern. I use lightweight craft paper that is practically transparent, so it's quick and easy. Then I chop, rotate dart, tape paper together, true lines & sew. I don't sew muslins when I work this way. I figure using the TNT is good enough and I will wear whatever I make.
The design features were chosen to complement my particular shape. I tried to make the neckline and the vertical seam at the points where my "best necklines" go, according to Imogen. I added lots of volume to the sleeve heads since I have slight shoulders. The hem at high hip helps balance the height between upper body and lower body. Periwinkle RPL fabric from Christine Jonson.
Christine Jonson Travel Trio One - 1204. Fabric from JaneM who doesn't need winter fabrics anymore :-) and it's a doubleknit of some sort.
I liked this so much I cut out 2 more versions of it using fabric from A Fabric Place. Here is the back view my dark teal knit. In this version I reduced volume in the sleeve head, but I like it both ways:
The gray jersey version is nearly complete, too. Must move on to a new style! I think I may pull SWAP out of these pieces yet. But first, I need to pick up a few things. And I think I'll go to Dongdaemun for that ;0
