Asymmetrical Sweater Top

Made a quick top – took me a few weeks because, life. But I love the result – just in time for fall too! I became aware of this pattern because of Raliat’s version – and i just had to have one after seeing her outfit!

I used a pattern – McCall 7194. The top was really long on me initially, I had to lower the whole arm hole/shoulder seam/neckline down by 3 inches to make it fit (thus both shortening the bodice and narrowing the shoulder. The two asymmetrical seams ended up starting from the arm hole – but it actually didn’t look bad. Next time though I think I might try to make this even shorter – maybe a 4 inch reduction.

The fabric is this quilted knit from Joann, and its very squishy and warm. I like the subtle difference in the “bubble” pattern on the top and bottom of the sweater from the way its aligned differently. The whole thing is serged together and zigzagged on the edges.

I love this outfit – something I gravitate towards in the fall – sweater, legging, and boots. Love that the legging’s front and back seams are covered by the hem so I feel a bit more modest, and yet the sides and high enough that its a good proportion on my petite frame. I am also wearing my hand made splats here- it goes quite well in this outfit!
