The Bella Knit Top

Another easy pattern to sew with a neckline twist!  I designed the Bella Knit Top sewing pattern to be sewn with knits for comfort and coordinate with A Touch of Couture Lace Embroidery Collection, Regardless if you add embroidery, this knit top is trendy and easy to sew!  slightly fitted in the bust area and looser in the waist and hip area with a flattering curved hemline.  Different than my other knit top patterns, this one has a v-neckline with facing instead of a ribbed collar band. 

Although there are two sleeve options, I named the pattern after the bell-like sleeve which is fitted in the bicep area and then bells out in the wrist area, hemmed with an elastic casing. 

I have sewn this version with rayon jersey knit for the body and mesh for the sleeve.  The short sleeve version offers a loose, flowing sleeve and a chiffon fabric is a great choice.  I am just finishing a few more Bella Knit Tops and will share photos next week with a few tutorials on sewing and embroidering this trendy top.

The Bella Knit Top sewing pattern is available in instant digital download format or the paper version with spiral notebook mailed to your home.  


NOTE:  The Bella Knit Top PDF version is included FREE with the The Touch of Couture Embroidery Collection.
