Style Arc Ada knit top

This pattern has been around for a little while, but I only sewed it up last year.  I find it interesting how I can overlook a pattern for ages, then all of a sudden look at it with fresh eyes and become enthused.

My fabric is a knit remnant from The Cloth Shop.  I adore the colour and the chevrons.  There is a metallic thread knitted into it too, which does have the effect of making the fabric feel slightly scratchy.  However, not unwearably so.

This was an easy sew, with construction shared between the overlocker and the sewing machine. I used a twin-needle to finish hems and to secure the neckband. As always, I use this method to get the length and distribution of the neckband just right.  I find it works much better on deeper curves than simply quartering the neckline and neckband.

This is size 12 without alterations. I rather like the slightly drapey side pockets.

The scooped neckline is not too high, not too low. There’s lots to like about this top, especially if you prefer things that are not fitted through the waist. It works particularly well with skinny pants (these are Style Arc Misty jeans).
