Style Arc Amy (yes, again)

A quick perusal of my flickr photostream tells me that this is the fourth time I have sewed the Style Arc Amy top.

This is one of Style Arc’s older patterns. From their website: This knit top has a semi cowl neck and dropped side seams which can be left loose or tied to give it the new look. FABRIC SUGGESTION & DESCRIPTION: Any soft knit or jersey.

I sewed this one in a very soft ribbed acrylic/wool knit from Super Cheap Fabrics.  It is slightly clingy, but also very warm.

I didn’t bother to do the side slits. This is fast to sew, all done on the overlocker except for the hems, which I did with a simple zig-zag after turning the raw edge to the inside about 1.5cm.

The cowl neckline is not typical – it’s quite a deep U shape, with a slightly shaped rectangular cowl attached. I rather like it – which is probably obvious considering that I’ve sewn this pattern four times!  On this version I added folded back cuffs, mostly due to fabric restrictions.

Thanks everyone for your kind words about the green linen jacket that was the subject of my last blog post.  I’ll definitely post some pictures when I have worked out how I want to style it!
