Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

The Ashley Knit Top is a fun knit pattern that is a great wardrobe basic. With 3 sleeve options plus a hood, it can be used year round. The top is the perfect style for upcycles or just adding basic shirts to your child's wardrobe. A few changes in the construction of the garment will achieve a variety of looks.

In this pattern, I've included options for 2 lengths for the top, 2 options for the neckline finishing, 2 hood styles, and 3 sleeve variations (sleeveless, ruffled cap sleeve and 3/4 length flounce sleeve) to allow for many versions of the finished Top. I love patterns that allow me to use a variety of prints, especially those remnants from past projects that are too big to throw away but not quite large enough for a complete garment.

I've been sewing for 30+ years and have enjoyed trying many new techniques along the way. I wrote this eBook for most levels of sewers, from confident beginner to advanced.
