My first top

This top was made to match my skirt. :) My first attempt with knits. The experience wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. The instructions, with illustrations (same sewing book as skirt), were easy to interpret. I relied more on the illustrations though cause I have problems reading chinese. Furthermore, this book was written in traditional chinese, not the simplified chinese I was taught in school.

Basically I just needed to cut fabrics for the front, back and bias for collar, then piece all together. I found it easy to serge the pieces together. Pictures time!
