Fresh on the heels of the double brushed jersey top, blogged here, I made another version in a sweater knit from Michael Levine which I purchased for $4.80 per yard.
This is a loose-weave knit in shades of salmon/coral and ivory in cotton/poly/rayon/spandex. I wanted to see how Burda 6846 sewed up in a sweater knit and it turned out very well.
In my typical fashion, I used a stretch stitch on the sewing machine for all seams and trimmed/finished the seams with the serger. The hems were done on the coverstitch.
I considered adding clear elastic to support the raglan seams, but I was worried it might be uncomfortable and/or affect the fit under the arms. We'll see how well the sweater holds up over time.
Mehetabel is wearing Jalie Eleonores in navy heavy weight stretch twill, also from Michael Levine.
My daughter, Mehetabel, loves it. Huzzah!
I don't have much more to say about this pattern. It's quick and easy. The pieces fit together perfectly and I was able to eke it out of two and half yards.
I'll probably make at least one more version of this top, and I might make the skirt too.
