Today's Outfit: Get Alex's Look

Today's Outfit: Get Alex's Look

Alex spent some time in Eureka Springs, Arkansas for our Sewing Workshop retreat this past week where she whipped up a great version of the Alex Top. Be inspired and get this look today. 


The Alex Top is one of the two styles in the Alex & Olive Tops pattern. It's normally a cowl-collar knit pullover shirt with an inset A-line front detail. It gathers at the center back neckline. There are also curved sides that extend to mid-thigh and it has long sleeves. Alex made a spring version of this top, leaving off the cowl-collar and adjusting the sleeve length to make them short. 

Leaving off the cowl collar: Simply cut the neckline according to the pattern and proceed to make a standard Ready-To-Wear knit binding piece for a traditional T-Shirt neckline finish. Here we use our 7/8 rule in order to measure the neckline and cut the piece appropriately. See below for additional instructions.

Adjusting the sleeves: Simply adjust the sleeves using the Lengthen /Shorten line on the pattern and adjust to your desired length. Alex's sleeves are about 10.5 inches long. 

​Send us your outfits using our patterns and we could feature you on a Get the Look segment.
