Even though it is summer here, I always like to have a collar on my knit shirts. I was getting tired of my polos. One of my favorite knit fabrics this summer was the little dot and line knit we have in three colors--black & cream, bronze & black and red & orange. This viscose knit has stretch on the crosswise, but not very much on the lengthwise so it does have a certain stability, wonderful drape and washes great.
Each of the garments in our MixIt Pattern can be made with a knit or a woven. This is the MixIt Top. I did not make any changes to the pattern or alter any detail because of the knit. I didn't even need to use a lightweight interfacing at the front keyhole or collar.
I now have a really comfortable and cool summer top with one of my favorite patterns.
