Simplicity 4076 Gather Neck Top Finished
The Simplicity 4076 gather neck top is now finished. I started it this morning and have worked on it a little bit at a time through the day.
I think I may have slightly overdone the gathering as the neck is quite snug, but its a good top for causal days.
Its made using a remnant of teal t shirting from Abakhan fabrics in Preston. It sews quite nicely except the edges curl like mad and it does not have a lot of stretch.
I have put 7/8ths sleeves on - straight instead of the flared ones on the pattern. There is a centre back seam so I could angle in at the back neck and flare out for the hips/butt.
