Knit Sailboat Top

I still have lots of this retro car interlock, so I tried it out on an oliver + s Sailboat Top for Leo for the fall.

He still loves the fabric, even though this is his third shirt in it. And the details of this top make it unique anyway.

Once again, the sleeves turned out too long for him, so I'll have to re-hem them. This is a size 2, which fits him well with plenty of room to grow at 27 months.

The pattern works for both woven and knit fabrics. Since I was using knit though, I basted each seam with a long, straight stitch on my sewing machine and then serged over it to finish.

The button holes were a little tricky since this interlock is a little thick, but it worked out.
