The Penni Top
Do you love to design and have some sewing experience? Then the Fit Nice System is for you!
Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a two-day workshop and learned the ins and outs of this type of pattern drafting.
In the class we used the Fit Nice Pants Pattern and made a pair of pants that fit like a dream!
Everyone has a unique shape and the ready to wear sometimes just doesn't fit to truly flatter your figure. Judy Kessinger has solved the problem!
Visit her web site to learn more about her innovative way to draft patterns. She has tons of videos to help you along the way.
Once I made my pattern I decided to make a simple long sleeve top with a soft cowl neckline.
Here are the pattern pieces I used:
Basic sewing instructions:
All in all this top was easily created in an evening. I did serge the seams and added easy knit to the top of each shoulder. This adds stability to the shoulder seam along with a little bit of structure.
This top was super comfortable! My daughter told me it looked like something I would buy at Chico's! Wow! What a complement because I love to shop at Chico's.
