We have a really fun post today! Did you know the Floreat pattern includes bonus cutting lines and pattern pieces for knit versions? It’s actually my personal favorite versions to make!
Here are some of the differences between the knit and woven versions: neckline is finished with a neckband instead of facing, no need for center back closure – so center back seam is completely sewn up, sleeves are inserted flat instead of in the round, and the hem is only folded up once instead of twice. I’ll be going over the entire construction in this post, so bear with me.
And I’ll be demonstrating these steps on a top/tee version, but it works just the same for a dress!
Before you get started, make sure you cut your front and back pieces out along the knit neckline cutting line.
