Loose Fit Knit Top with Cuffed Sleeves

Loose Fit Knit Top with Cuffed Sleeves

Here's another altered version of the top I made earlier this week, this time in a white, burnout jersey. The fabric is semi-sheer so I have to wear a cami underneath but I really like the fun striped design. Unlike the other shirt, this shirt doesn't have set in sleeves and instead has little cuffs on the sleeves.

***I used to offer a pattern for this top but I've replaced it with the Summer Concert Tee.

  1. Hi hi honey! I loved this shirt when you posted it on burda, so using two old tee shirts I made one of my own. I linked back to you. GREAT pattern.

  3. The top pattern I have been searching for all my [sewing] life! I am definitely going to be making a few of these to up my "self-stitched" top count as I gear up for Self-Stitched September...

    If it's ok, I'll be posting on my blog when I've made a couple, I will of course link back to your lovely blog, and I'd be delighted if you had a moment to have a look yourself.

  4. Great pattern! Do you mind me asking - what software do you use to draw your patterns with please? I want to draw my own patterns and I'm trying to use CorelDRAW, but was thinking about getting pattern making software too :)

  5. Claire, I just use Adobe Illustrator, no specific pattern making software although I'm interested in buying some but I'm afraid to make a commitment when I don't know which kind is best, you know?

  6. ^ LOL, thanks for the reply! You're similar to me then re: saving $ (or £ in my case!) on some software I don't know how to use yet :) CorelDRAW is similar I think (?) to AI, and as I'm pretty much self taught on CD and enjoy it so much I think (for now) I'll save my pennies and stick with what I already know :)

  8. I made another one and linked back to you again- I don't think my links came across as well in the first post so I wanted to clear it up. I LOVE THIS PATTERN! ^_^ You're a genius.

  9. Hi Dixie,

    I'm so happy I found your blog. Your patterns are perfect! I've made one Loose Fit Knit Top, two T-Shirt-Dresses and one Two-Piece-Tunic. Every finished garment fits just the way I wished to. I didn't make any alterations. When I went to my parents' wearing the One-Piece-Tunic, my mom couldn't believe I had made it by myself. She compimented me every time she looked at it :-)
    I am a busty, feminine size 16, sometimes 18 and your biggest size is perfect for me, slighty loose and comfy.
    As a specialist in the metric system I can tell you, 4 inches are not 5 cm ^^ It's about 10 cm.
    Greetings from Heidelberg,

  10. Fubsy - ugh, I've made that 5cm typo before. I don't know why it's in my head to type 5cm not 10cm. Sorry about that! I thought I had corrected it. Which pattern did you see that error? I just want to make sure it's been fixed and re-uploaded.

    Thanks for the comment and I'm so glad everything fits! You don't know how happy that makes me to hear it :)

  13. hey, is there any way I could get my hands on the swing top pattern?

    I was half way through making it and I messed up my print out and of course the file was saved on my computer that died a few months back so I can’t print it out again =(

    I would just wing it but I’m making it out of really nice Liberty print jersey and I don’t want to mess it up!
