I can’t believe that it ever took me this long to actually use knit fabrics! If I could live in one uniform for the rest of my life, it would probably be in the form of a t-shirt and leggings. (In case you were wondering, YES – leggings are totally real pants!)

I’ve been sewing on an average of a few garments per year over the last several years, but none get the love that my completed knit projects do. This latest knit peplum top make and my knit sweater top from last year go to all the layovers AND all the laundry days. If you look at both of these patterns, although made a year apart, they most definitely have their similarities. I don’t know it I’m just a sucker for sporting knits with color-blocking, raglan sleeve details or both! Either way, I can’t get enough of wearing these two.

Honestly, most of my other projects get pushed aside in my closet and get worn VERY rarely. I’ve realized that there is a real difference between choosing a sewing project because you think said fabric/pattern is amazing, verses actually selecting a pattern that is both unique + flattering to you AND your personal style. Too many times I’ve been excited to make something, but not really as excited to actually wear it.

As usual, I digress.

McCall’s 6754, an easy knit pattern, is yet another relatively quick-sew with easy-to-follow directions. My video above does a great job showing you how it actually moves on the body (ie. I’m doing ridiculous dance moves to demonstrate that very point. Hashtag. You’re all welcome.) Also, I did modify the pattern around the neckline a bit though. Definitely feel free to check out my official reviews of this pattern both on Pattern Review + Kollabora!

Til next time seamsters 🙂
