Simplicity 2971 Knit Top

Review | Simplicity 2971 Knit Top

Pattern Description: Simplicity 2971 Knit Top: View A with a gathered collar and elasticized raglan sleeves. This pattern is out-of-print.

Pattern Sizing: 6-14. I made a 10.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing? Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very. The raglan sleeves made things so much easier. I just suggest taking your time on the collar to keep the stitching straight.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the gathered scoop neck, sleeves, and bottom hem.

Fabric Used: Sheer onion skin fabric from Wal-Mart and printed stretch jersey.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: On the pink shirt, I shortened the hem by 2″. I wish I had left it long.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Since I made it twice, to go with jeans, I will probably not make this again. This is a good beginner pattern, in my opinion, because it is very simple to put together.

Conclusion: Nice quick top if you’re looking for an instant gratification project!
