everyone needs basic white tops in their wardrobe. Simplicity 4076 is a great pattern, with 3 different styles for knit tops. I made 2 of them from the last of my bamboo jersey.
Construction-wise, this went together really smoothly. i'm finally learning to take the foot off the gas on my serger and the stitching is my best yet.
Size-wise, this was a FAIL. i cut out the size 12, which fits fine in the waist/hips area, but it's way too large from the bust on up. next time i should really grade the pattern to fit better. one of those, "i knew better, but" things. the same thing happened with the other view that i sewed, the gathered scoop-neck tee.
i am glad to be finished with the bamboo jersey. it feels soft and cool to wear, but it's a bear to cut, not much easier to sew, it's a bit too sheer, and it wrinkles like crazy. oh and i have to stay away from the cats, because they've punctured holes in the other 2 tops i've made from this fabric.
i will definitely be going back to this pattern. i want to try the twist-front top, and the other two are basic designs that can be made over and over. i think this particular faux-wrap style would look better in a print, like it shows on the pattern envelope. i really like the side ruching and the flutter sleeves. i'll just make it fit better next time.
