Wrap-Style Knit Top

Cassie_Wuensche | Posted in Patterns on

*
Does anyone know of a pattern for a wrap-style knit top? I have a slinky knit top made by Mr. Jax of Canada. I would love to have one just like it in the new gray knit for fall.

    Cassie, Sandra Betzina has a wrap top of her own design in the Vogue pattern book.

            *New Look 6704 is a cute wrap top as well. Or could you trace the top you currently have?

            *Hi Karen,Thanks for the suggestion. I just finished a copy this weekend. Being a novice I had no idea what an undertaking it would be. But I'm really glad I did because now I have the exact top I wanted. I had to make some adjustments in the shoulders because somehow I measured the back really wide. I overestimated the drape in the front, too. I know THREADS had some info on copying pants a while back, but do you know if anyone has a good way to copy blouses without sacrificing them?

            *It's really quick and easy. If it's a really simple top, I just pin it as flat as possible to a large piece of paper, and trace one piece at a time with a tracing wheel. Usually there is not too much (if at all) ease in the shoulder, so I trace half of it on a folded piece of paper. Then I add seam allowances and hems to each piece.I've used this technique with simple sweaters and t-shirts.
