Floral Knit Top, Simplicity 1916

Simplicity 1916

Simplicity 1916, View D

ITY floral print from Sawyer Brook
(very nice to sew)

Fitting Adjustments
I would strongly suggest making a muslin of this top before you get started.  I used plain muslin, but made sure it fit very tight.  

Sloped shoulder for the right side.
FBA by hinging to the pleats in the bodice pieces.
Added 2" to the "skirt" part of the front to give it enough fabric to gather in the middle.

Happy this top matches the black ponte skirt that I made last week!
