Another pattern repeat! This one is the Style Arc Ginger knit top. Photos taken after a day of work – and I notice that the sleeve hems are crumpled from the jacket I’ve just taken off.
This ticks all the boxes for a work top for me. I prefer V necklines, and it isn’t too low. There are short sleeves, it’s sewn in a knit, and there is plenty of room there for my middle. The fabric came from Clear It – I suspect it’s a viscose knit. It’s quite a decent weight, and was easy to sew and is just as easy to wear.
From the Style Arc website: This is the top of the season made simple. Clever drafting makes this top easy to sew without losing the look. All in one sleeve, full front wrap with shoulder tucks falling into a draped bodice.
I notice that I first sewed this top in 2014. What is great about this top is that unlike many with a drapey front hem, this one can easily be made in prints as well as solids (many similar fabric show the reverse side on half of the front). It’s fast to sew too.
And there’s the aforementioned jacket that crumpled up the sleeve hems – it’s a Style Arc Harper jacket. The pants are Style Arc Barb. This is a pretty typical work outfit for me.
