Pattern: Annika Top by StyleArc – Mix knit and woven fabrics together in this versatile style to create an interesting wardrobe staple. The dropped shoulder and the woven split cuff along with the body combination will become a go-to garment.

Sizing: Australian sizing 4 to 30. The pattern is available in multi-size hard copy or PDF single sizes or multi sizes (4-16 and 18-30). Minerva sells multi size hard copies.

Fabric: 1 m of Lady McElroy of red Ponte Roma jersey and 1.3 m cherry viscose challis

Notions: n/a

Modifications: I made size 8. for the split cuff I cut 4 pieces of each pattern piece rather than 2 of each, to save me from hemming the edges. The viscose challis is quite slippery.

Fit: lose

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: yes

Watch out for: Make sure you add the sleeve bands the right way. I made a mistake and the opening ended up in the back. It has happened because I changed the construction order. Luckily this top is quite loose so I can wear it back to front as well. 😅

Make Again?: yes.
