Sleeveless Striped Metallic Knit Top
The pattern is Jalie 2921. I used Mood Fabric’s oyster/brown gray metallic striped cotton jersey knit. A couple months ago I’d bought a cut of it along with its matching larger stripe for a different knit top, but the project bombed. However, I liked the fabric so much that I got another 1.5 yards and went for a garment I knew would turn out.
Since I wanted more of a casual look and didn’t want to tie the scarf into a bow like my previous top, I cut the scarf shorter and on the fold. I cut a size T and made fabric facings for the armholes. A twin needle was used to hem the armholes and bottom.
This fabric has a subtle metallic sheen to it. I’m kind of a Magpie when it comes to fabric selection. If it’s shiny or brightly colored my brain says, “Oooh, pretty! Come to mama!”
Now, one of you needs to buy both sizes of this stripe and make something fabulous.
