Style Arc Sunny

I’ve made this top before – I think this could be my fourth version.  It’s a great shape for me.

The Style Arc Sunny has a terrific cocoon shape, with that volume balanced by fitted sleeves. Like the Tessuti Mandy boat tee, fabric choice is extremely important. Because those sleeves are fitted, and there is a dropped shoulder seam around the bicep, you really do need a knit with four way stretch. If it is only two-way you’ll need to make alterations to make the sleeves fit comfortably. In a four-way stretch there are no issues at all. Style Arc Sunny top

The fabric is a fabulous printed knit that I picked up at Restash last year. I cut it from the scraps left over after sewing a dress (as yet unphotographed and unblogged) and didn’t have quite enough for the lower back piece, so I just used the same contrast fabric I was using for the neckband and called it a design feature. The printed knit has sparkly teal dots all over it – this top really glitters in the sunlight!

From the Style Arc website: This is a new shape for a knit top. The oversized look becomes very flattering because of pattern drafting and the cocoon shape which is the new on trend look. Try it, you will love it!!
