Hi Everyone!!

Here in Michigan it has been so cloudy and dull lately.  January has always been a hard month for me.  I think it is for everyone.

It’s still dark in the morning, cloudy all day, cold, snowy, and dark early.   But brighter days are on their way!!

This is inspired me to pick this gorgeous green teal color to make my Itch to Stitch Brasov Wrap Top.

I choose this top because of the high neckline.  I don’t know about you, but every time I buy a store bought top, they always come down so low that I have to wear a tank top or cami underneath.  Then even the tank top or cami tends to go low whenever I bend down.

With a two year old, you are always bending down, lol!!!

I actually love this top!  I didn’t make any changes.  I am pear so I did grade from a Medium at neckline and down to an xtra large at the hip area.

Being an ity knit, I was really worried about all the pleats in this top.

The ones on the side are a little messy because I forgot how to do a pleat, lol and had to redo.

There were 5 pleats on the side and 2 pleats on each side at the top.

The instructions were very clear and helped a lot.  I did use some knit fusible tape to help keep the facining intact and not flip out.

I love the high neckline and the length of the top.  I am 5’6″ with a long torso and wide hips.  I love the sleeve length and the color.  I find this top very flattering on myself.

I bought this ity knit from Frabic Mart.  I have already worn this top a couple of times and have had not issues of it stretching out.

I will definitely be making more of these tops in the future!!

Until next time.
