My first DIY knit top in years! From the Pattern Anthology... Just Add Jeans!

I mentioned recently that I've been having a lot of fun with PDF patterns from independent designers. This top is another one!!

I put on my walking foot for this fun top, a grey and black knit and a super simple and comfy tee (the  Day Tripper pattern from the Pattern Anthology sale - proud to be on the tour introducing the patterns as part of the Just Add Jeans series!)...

I like the high-low hem! I wasn't sure how it would work with the straight grain knit band at the bottom, but it was easy to ease around the curves in the front and back.

Comfy!

The lovely knit was generously provided from Girl Charlee--they have so much great stuff! I got several cuts, will have to try them all soon!

The Day Tripper pattern is part of the Pattern Anthology tour, their 4th pattern collection, Just Add Jeans - four cute easy knit top patterns. It's for sale from March 10th-24th, and all these patterns are original to the Pattern Anthology, designed by the very talented ladies behind it, for this sale at the steeply discounted tour price (after March 24th the patterns will be for sale individually). I am so impressed by all the work that goes into putting together these patterns. I can't imagine all the testing and sewing, not to mention digital work and of course promotion! Serious kudos!


The pattern tour for the Just Add Jeans knit top series includes these 15 incredible sewing bloggers. I am so flattered to be on this list!

It's great to be getting more comfortable sewing on knits. I've been using a walking foot and a long, narrow zigzag, since I don't have a serger. I don't make a lot of knit tops for myself, but this one was so fast and fun and easy, I may have to start!

How about you? Sew on knits much?
