Aloha! I think a simple knit top and skirt is one of my favorite combinations to wear here in Maui, and this look is so easy and satisfying to make. This time I combined skirt B, without the pockets, from New Look 6875 with the knit top from New Look 6981.
FFC. I cut the size 10 and did not need to make any alterations. The top has a pleat in the neckline on the front shoulder to add a little bit more drape to the cowl. I like the cap sleeves. The neckline and armholes are finished with self-fabric binding that has been turned to the inside and top-stitched down. I used my coverstitch machine for the hem.
Fabric.com. This ITY knit is the last one I have out of several prints that I ordered earlier in the year. Because I eliminated the pockets, this skirt has only two pieces, the front and the back. I added one inch to the height of the waistband to give the skirt more length. The waistband is finished with 1" wide elastic that was attached with a zigzag stitch then turned down and topstitched with my coverstitch machine. So easy!
