So, the title says it all...If I make the back one piece instead of using a zipper and adjusted the neckline a bit, do you think I could use a knit fabric to make this top from Butterick 5419?



Or, if anyone could point me towards a fitted, narrow-sleeved knit top pattern, I'd be grateful. :-)

I think you could.  Depending on how you want it to fit, you may be able to make a slightly smaller size, too.  Just make sure your seam and hem finishes are appropriate to your knit.

I think you could too, and as Aislynn says, make it a size smaller.

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness

I would love to get my hands on charlie harper fabric.
