The Delila Knit Top Pattern

This SUPER easy to sew knit top, the  Delila Knit Pattern launched a few years ago and is still a staple in my wardrobe.  I designed the Delila pattern based on a simple kimono style that tapers in the high hip area.  You know me, I can’t stop at a simple top, so I added not one, but NINE sleeve version!  

Recognize the blue short sleeve version with the slits I am wearing ~ I have worn it at EVERY event LOL!  This version is sewn out of an ITY knit, this fabric doesn’t wrinkle meaning it rolls out of my suitcase like this.  Even though the fabric is polyester, the slits in the sleeve allow airflow.  

     

    Here is a rundown of all the sleeve variations: 

    • Basic long sleeve
    • Basic 3/4 sleeve
    • Basic short sleeve
    • Long sleeve with cuffs
    • Long sleeves with outside trim and cuffs
    • Long sleeve with slits and cuffs
    • Three-quarter length sleeve
    • Three-quarter length sleeve with outside trim
    • Three-quarter length sleeve with slits
