Office Knits

Pattern: McCall's Misses' Tops M6164
Fabric: knit
Cost: $5

This shirt is made with bargain bin fabric, barely enough, and not even a full cowl, but it's my new favorite work shirt.

This top is inspired by my very chic coworker, who always wears sleek tops and looks so sophisticated. To make it, I cut out my stand-by McCall's M6164, doubling up on the front and back because the fabric was very sheer. I didn't have quite enough for a full cowl a-la-Renfrew, but for now the drapey turtleneck suits me just fine.

While I've been working a lot of office blouses, I've also come to the realization that knit tops are waay more comfy and can also be made office-appropriate. I think I'll be making more in the future!


  1. Looks great. Knit is so forgiving, especially with fit.

  2. Cute! I love the idea of making dressy knit tops. I should make more of those, because, like you say, they are so comfy.

  3. I like that there wasn't enough fabric for the full neck cowl, as this wavy neckline is really cute!!

  4. this is great, love the neck detail!
