A Draped Knit Top: Simplicity 1716

Sewed my first-ever sweater-knit project--a very fine gauge knit of unknown material. Viscose perhaps? Hancock's had a bin with unmarked remnants in it, and I only spent $4 for it. It's a gorgeous soft gray-green, one of my favorites.

I used Simplicity 1716, choosing the draped neck, the 3/4 sleeves, and the plain front.

I would not say that sweater-knit is the most fun ever to work with. No I would not. But the shirt went together nicely, and drapes nicely.

If they thought I was going to try topstitching the back of the neck on the machine, they thought wrong.  I chose a toning embroidery floss from the stash and just used a running stitch to hold that back binding down. And give things a touch of class.
