SWAP Seven #2 Knit Top

The second of my seven garments is a simple scoop necked knit top.
This is a great pattern with two sleeve lengths.
I made a forward head alteration by shaping the back seam and shortening the neckband accordingly.
The short sleeved top was cut from the same fabric as the dress, and the 3/4 sleeve top from the same fabric as the cardigan. To make best use of the fabric in both cases I cut both garments out at the same time from each fabric. The print knit stretches up as well as across so I think I cut the sleeves out at right angles due to fabric shortage.
This is a great pattern I have used a lot!

You are a born model. What fun pictures! BTW, love the red necklace that you're wearing with the t-shirt.
