With the green print mesh I made this simple 'as you please' wrap top with long sleeves.
The first iteration was a bit short and the hem flipped up, so I undid the hem and cut the lining back so it now sits flat. It's now in the charity pile - finished and ready for someone else to wear.
So I tried it again with
- a bit more length (5cm)
- a larger front piece
- clear elastic along the front neckline seam.
This version was sewn on sewing machine. The cover stitch machine didn't like the light weight knit I used.
This third version uses a Charlie Brown remnant from Pitt Trading to go with my Minerva black jeans.This has become a great autumn wrap top.
Here's what the original print looked like.
This remnant has taken me a long to figure out how to use it on me and it's now a fun top to wear. Petites can wear large prints.

Now to move onto the raglan V-neck version of this pattern.
