Here are my versions.
This is really a very simple garment to make. I added a neckband on mine but you could just turn the seam allowance under at the neckline instead like Peggy did..
Materials: 1 1/2 to 1 3/4meters (yards) of fabric such as sweater knit, fleece ,stretch lace or something that drapes nicely.
2 large buttons for the front and 2 smaller buttons for the back.
For my top I used a wool knit that is quite heavy.
Step 1... Cut a 3" strip of fabric crosswise hrom the bottom of your fabric.You will use part of this later for the neckband
Step2 ...Fold your fabric in half so the selvages are parallel to each.Fold again joining all selvages.
Step 3... Using a French curve ( or a plate or bowl if you don't have one ,) draw a curved line at the center fold that will be the size of the back neckline. To do this fit the French Curve (or the bowl) against the back neckline of one of your garments which is folded in two like in the photo below.Mark the arc with tape.
Draw the neckline on your folded fabric .
Add a 5/8" seam allowance. Make a notch at the center fold.
Cut through all thicknesses..
Step 4... Open the piece so selvages are again parallel.
Step 5... Now put the fabric over your head. Hold out your arms and decide how wide to makeyour top.I made this one longer than the green one in the first photo.
The width of this fabric was 150 cm.before cutting off the selvages and I used the whole width .
With a French curve or ruler shape the shoulders of your top slightly.Starting at the
neck, draw a slightly curved angled line to the side of your fabric.
Step 6...Shape the sides by drawing an anled line from the sleeve edge to the hem line like this.
I went in about 6" at the bottom and angled the line to that point.
Step 10... Pin the neckband to the neck edge matching the notches at center front and the seam of the band to the center back of the neck opening.Pin stretching the band a little with each pin until the neckline is distributed evenly along the band.
