I originally thought I'd use this Butterick pattern. I more recently decided that the pattern was too fussy for me, so I sold it:
I finally settled on this pattern. I made the bottom view without sleeve slits:
Hubby helped me decide how to place the stripes, so the layout was fun. I mostly cut it out for size 18, but I cut the smallest neck size:
I pinned the shoulder seams:
I used a log, narrow zigzag stitch to sew my seams:
After I made and attached the facing, I understitched with a three-step zigzag stitch:
I finished by topstitching about an inch from the neck edge. then I sewed the side seams.
Because it's a knit, I did not hem the sleeves or the lower edge.
It was quick to make and it's easy to wear:
When I make it again, I will lengthen it by about three inches, since it barely tucks into my shorts and skirts.
I highly recommend this pattern!
