Shirred Top- This top is as beautiful inside as out and is fun to make. You will learn to construct an easy and old-fashioned bateau neckline that fits perfectly. The shirring is encased inside the self-lining beautifully and is interesting to sew. Always something new to learn! Once you have finished sewing the top, turn it right side out and you will be thrilled at the results! Multi-sized.
Princess Wrap Top- Is it easier to sew or more flattering to wear? That is what you will be asking yourself after you have made a dozen of these tops! This pullover, wrap top âwrapsâ high on the bustline and flatters the waistline with gathers and shaping. Choosing size based on fabric characteristics and pattern ease is just one thing you will learn when sewing this fun pattern! It offers a great shaped cap sleeve or a long sleeve to cut at any length.

I've only sewn the Princess Wrap but it is my go-to knit top. It's flattering, comfortable, and has a more polished appearance than a t-style shirt. I especially like how easy it is to use a variety of finishes on the neckline edge, since you do not have to worry about completing a circle - the ends are serged/sewn into the princess seams. Really a lovely design.
