Have you seen the new Pattern Anthology Unbiased Collection? A knit fabric women’s pattern collection made for women of all shapes and sizes, brought to you by the fabulous pattern designers behind See Kate Sew, Go To Patterns, Shwin & Shwin, and Melly Sews. All incredible designers in their own right, but when they team up MAGIC happens.
I was asked to be a part of the Unbiased tour, and was given the option to sew any of the 4 patterns being offered in the collection. With such a wide range of options and variations to choose from, I ended up landing on the Gwen Top made by See Kate Sew.
Make this Look: Gwen Top.

A NOTE ON FIT:
I sewed a medium bust, then expanded to a large waist. I like my shirts to be on the looser side, as I never feel comfortable in tight tops. I also added extra ease in the sleeves, as the mesh inserts needed a straight stitch across the width, which caused the knit fabric to be too tight for the fitted sleeve. If you are using only knit fabric, this sleeve adjustment is unnecessary. But if you choose to add mesh inserts as seen in my photos, an extra inch of ease is recommended. You will need to adjust the armsyce to accommodate the larger sleeve.
SKIRT SEEN IN PHOTOS:
The skirt seen in these photos is a handmade leather pleat skirt that I made for Alt Summit more than 3 years ago. You can find two different pleated skirt DIYs on the blog:
*Please note – the Gwen top pattern actually COMES WITH a pencil skirt bonus pattern!!!
A totally cool and unexpected pattern gift included.
