Simplicity 2369 Blackberry top

I loved the last wrap top so much I made this one straight away.
Same adjustments as last time (sz 22 with a 1" FBA) but this knit was a bit more stretchier so I had to take in the back seam and side seams by about 3/4" each.
The fabric is a wool/viscose blend, its thinner than the last version but after wearing the teal one to work on a warmish day I wanted something that could breath. Its a beautiful blackberry colour, nice deep purple.

I ran out of hem tape so the bottom hem is unfinished, but I don't think its noticable plus its a knit so its not like it will unravel on me.

It's such an easy top to wear and to dress up or down depending on what you wear with it.


  1. Lovely - I am definately going to get myself this pattern! Love the colour too.

  2. I love the colour. Knits are so forgiving aren't they?

  3. Love it - gorgeous colour and it looks like it would be an easy garment to pick when dressing in the morning.

  4. This is super flattering on you!
