DIY Boxy Knit Top

I’ve been busy these past few months working on various DIY  apparel projects trying to improve my sewing skills. However, I realize that I have not shared them with you and need to catch you up to speed! In today’s post I’ll share about a Boxy Knit Top that I made. I like wearing this style top because they’re comfy yet stylish. I already own a couple of these kinds of tops in my closet, but sometimes I feel that they’re a little too short for my liking. Since I’ve started learning how to sew my own clothing, I’ve realized the beauty is that you can customize the fit of the garment to your own liking. So I wanted to try and make one for myself.

I found a simple tutorial by Cotton & Curls to help me understand how to construct the top. This time around I learned how to attach simple long sleeves. Here’s how my top turned out!

I love how versatile top is. It’s become one of my go to pieces to wear. You can dress it up with a skirt or go casual with a pair of jeans. I used a thicker jersey knit for this top, so it’s great for fall/winter and even now into early spring. With spring coming, I’m definitely going to be making more of these with lighter weight knit fabric!
