Creating Eastlake was quite the process, there were multiple iterations of the pattern before I finally decided to just go for it and make a DEEP v-neck top. I am smitten with how it turned out and with each new version that I sew I get even more excited. With a closet full of these tops I can definitively say that this style top is going to look amazing on everyone!
The obvious striking detail of this pattern is the v-neck front which is finished with a facing, one of my favourite finishing techniques for knits. It gives it such a pulled together professional finish without being any more difficult. To secure the front facing I wanted a wide topstitch which mirrors the bottom hem.
