I've got the Morrison Top tutorial for you today. This top is a quick and easy sew that's perfect for a beginner. Let me start with the basics...it's only 3 pieces! Yes, you heard me, you can finish this versatile wardrobe staple before you even know you've started! And even more, you can make it in as little as one yard of fabric! It's both a great stash buster and wardrobe builder at the same time. The pattern can be made in either a knit or woven and today I'm showing you how to make the top in knit fabric.
Ready to get started? You can purchase and download the pattern here, print it and tape it together (a "copy shop" version of the pattern is included in the package if you prefer having it printed) and choose your size using the size chart.
A few notes about fabric: you can use all different types of knit for this top as long as they have at least 30% stretch on the crossgrain. If you're new to knits and sewing, choose a "stable" knit which means a fabric that goes back into place after you stretch it (has good recovery), medium weight and doesn't lose it's shape. Good beginner knits are medium weight ponte and interlock and you may want to avoid anything too lightweight or drapey your first time out. I've used a medium weight ponte for the tutorial today and just love the way it came out.
So here is The Morrison Top step by step in full color....Enjoy! Don't forget to tag your makes #bluedotpatterns and #Morrisontop. We want to see what you make!
That's it! You did it!!!
