Style Arc Sunny – this time in animal print

Style Arc Sunny top

Hello there! I’ve sewm the Style Arc Sunny top before, and I bet that I will sew it up again. This time I used double brushed poly knit that I found at Rathdowne Fabrics.

That’s quite an amazing print! I find the variation in ‘big cat’ prints really quite astounding. This one seems to combine the usual replication of the spots found on the coat in a way that makes it look like there are folds in the fabric. Very clever.

This fabric is very soft and comfortable to wear, although I find that it sticks to itself a bit when being sewn. Construction on the overlocker, as usual, with the machine being used to twin needle the hems and to secure the neckband seam allowances. From the pattern website: This is a new shape for a knit top. The oversized look becomes very flattering because of pattern drafting and the cocoon shape which is the new on trend look. Try it, you will love it!! FABRIC SUGGESTION Slinky knit, any drapey knit.

In my experience you do need a knit with plenty of stretch for this top, probably four way stretch, because the sleeves are very fitted (to balance the rounded body shape).

I’ve also seen this sewn without the sleeves to wear in warmer weather.  Must give that a shot at some stage!
