Simplicity 2369 wrap top

I think I'm in love! I've been searching for the ultimate comfortable flattering top and I think this is it!
Not sure what this fabric is (got it from the clearance table, lol), its like a thick jersey or ity knit, not as clingy as the mercury jersey I used on my Blank Canvas Tee which is nice, and it drapes beautifully.

I made the sz 22 with a 1" FBA which I rotated into the pleats. Heres pictures of both front pieces after the alterations.

The instructions called for turning under the neck binding and top stitching but I liked the look of it left out like a t-shirt binding so I left it

I hemmed it 4" shorter than the pattern but managed to hem it too short at the back, not too noticable I hope and I've adjusted the pattern for next time (which I've already cut out of a wool blend knit in a gorgeous blackberry colour)

It sewed up like a dream, I mostly used the serger and it only took a couple of hours.
Highly recommended!


  1. Really nice work! Great color too!

  2. Love it! Must have it! Now! This is one pattern that I might just go to the SHOP to buy it - not wait for on-line delivery. Looks great on you. Good job.

  3. That is beautiful! It's on my "to sew" list!

  4. Fantastic top - I love the colour. It looks very comfy too.

  5. Beautiful top in such a lovely color - its great on you. Love the whole outfit.
