Style Arc Verity Knit Top

The Verity Knit Top was released in December, and was one of the ‘freebie’ patterns that month. I downloaded the multi-size PDF. The sizes are denoted with different colour lines, so print in colour if you can Style Arc describe Verity as ‘jumper style, square shape with Ann extended shoulder line, slim line sleeves, funnel neck with a channel for ribbon, slightly scooped hemline with a facing and feature top stitching’ This fabric is Abstract Leopard Print French Terry from Textile Express. I used my walking foot with a 1.5 x 2.5 zig zag stitch throughout and finished the seams and hems with my overlocker. The only change I made was to shorten the sleeve by 4cm. The funnel neck drapes well, and can be worn full height or folded. The buttonholes are the first part of the garment to be sewn. I added some medium weight iron on interfacing to stabilise and the strengthen the buttonhole. The hemline has a gentle curve with a facing that is the same for back and front. Three markings help to line up with the main body. I overlocked the facing after joining the facing seams Under-stitching holds the edge and it is then top stitched in place giving a soft curve to the hem The pattern is rated as ‘easy’ to ‘medium’ difficulty. It’s a straightforward make if you use all the pattern markings to line up the neckline and hem pieces. 😺✂️✂️
