The Delila Knit Top Pattern

The Delila Knit Top Pattern

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

     

    The Delila Knit Top #AW1531

    • Available in Misses Sizes 0 – 18 and Plus Sizes 16W – 36W
    • Skill Level: Beginner

    Supplies Needed:

    • Knit Fabric:  ITY knit, Rayon Knit, Jersey Knit

    Option Supplies: 

    • Tailors Clapper for pressing the hem and slits
    • Twin-needle or coverstitch machine
    • Wooly-Poly thread for the serger / coverstitch loopers

    The Bella Knit Top Sewing Pattern

    The Bella Knit Top Sewing Pattern

    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.

    The Bella Knit Top #AW2009  

    • Available in Misses Sizes 0 – 18 and Plus Sizes 16W – 36W
    • Skill Level: Beginner / Intermediate 

    Supplies Needed:

    Fabric Ideas

    • Knit Fabric with at least 3% lycra / spandex:  Jersey Knit, Rayon Knit, Crepe Knit, Bamboo Knit, Pont Knit, Stretch Velvet

    The Shirley Faux Wrap Dress & Top

    I designed this pattern as one of the wrap style dresses and tops for season 19 of It’s Sew Easy tv. The Shirley wrap can be sewn as a top or a dress.   Because the style must pullover the head, this top must be sewn with a knit.  

    There are many versions in this pattern including sleeveless, short sleeve, and long sleeve.  Then you have the option of sewing a top or dress.

    This top is easy to sew and perfect for beginners!  Here are the details:

    The Shirley Wrap Top & Dress #AW1913

    A stylish faux wrap knit top and dress.  

    • Available in Misses Sizes 0 – 18 and Plus Sizes 16W – 36W
    • Skill Level: Beginner

    Available in instant digital download format or the paper version with spiral notebook mailed to your home.

    On a Personal Note

    I just love the Douthat family!  I actually bought my first coverstitch machine from Allbrands, WAY before I ever met them.  Another first, my first embroidery event was with Allbrands.  We hit it off so well, many more followed, including the Houston Quilt Fest – which many of you have attended.  Last year the wolfpack made a real impression on the Allbrands booth!   A family owned business and an wonderful staff to boot.  

    During this covid shutdown, Barbara and I have had so much fun on the live shows.  In fact, the entire Douthat family is amazing, which is why I am so excited to feature them today!  So the wolfpack will be stopping by Allbrands’ Facebook and Instagram pages to say thank you for your support!!!
