Aqua Wrap Top


Cardigan: DIY, Gray Tank: Walmart, White Jeans: Mossimo-thrifted with tags still on!

Early in my sewing days and pre-blogging days I made this knit wrap top. Up close there are many things I can see that I would do differently...but I tend to see that with all my sewing. I think it is a sign that sewing is an art you can always improve upon and learn new techniques, and that is one of the things I love about it. The pattern is McCalls 5241.


This top is nice for wearing long as a drape front cardigan or you can wrap it around you or tie it for a different look. The thing I did not like about this pattern is the way the shoulders fit. They sit too low...but I am pretty sure this was an early sewing mistake. Either I cut the pattern out incorrectly or I didn't make an adjustment where needed. I would love to sew this again but somehow I have lost the tissue pattern and instructions...but at least I have the pattern envelope (cause that is the most helpful part...haha).

This is a quick and easy pattern and great for beginners who are comfortable working with knits.
