I'm using Vogue 1861, which in now out-of-print. I started with a size large (as I wanted loose fit). Fit alterations I made are: narrowed and lowered the neckline (front & back); removed 1 inch from shoulder width; and lowered the armhole 1/2". I had an issue with the sleeves not hanging correctly, so I rotated the sleeves toward the back and added a little to the back shoulder length. Now this is my TNT basic knit top pattern.
I added 3 inches to the length and added a little to the side seams to get more drape. The fabric is a poly/spandex ITY jersey I purchased several years ago from Fabric Mart. Hems were finished using my coverstitch machine. I had trouble with tunneling that I worked out by the time I finished. Neckline was bound, turned to inside and double-stitched. This one is 1/2" wide; all the others I used 1". I decided the back neckline is a little low on this one, so I raised it up for the other tops.
This top is the same size and shape as Top #1, but I used raglan sleeves. The floral fabric is a ITY jersey that I got at Fabric Mart several years. I used a solid black poly/lycra ITY jersey that I recently got from Fabric.com I added a 1" neck band and sleeve bands from the same black fabric. I love both of these fabrics and very happy with how this top turned out.
This one is a basic loose fitting tee shirt, and since it's black, I'm sure I'll wear it a lot. The fabric is a textured, light weight poly/lycra. I made it a couple inches shorter and less full; and also straightened the hem by shortening the side hem points. I added a 1" wide neckband using this method: neckline-binding-for-knits by Sarah Veblen. Since finding this, it's my favorite way to do the neckline on knit tops.
This is made exactly like the black one (top #3). The fabric is a light-weight cream colored lacy look knit. I paid $3.00 yard for it, and this is the 2nd top I've made from it. I got it last year at Zinck's fabrics in Berlin, Ohio. zincksfabric.com. This is a no-frills fabric outlet in a warehouse type metal building. It has inexpensive fabrics and a few notions and quilt batting. A fun place to shop!
I'm happy with all four tops and plan to make a couple more for winter - maybe a cowl neck and a lace one.
