This single knit reveals every little detail - roll, bounce, flaw, feature - of your body. It's not my favorite fabric, but I'm glad I had it to try out this top. Oh, and when you use a super thin single knit, be aware that you might end up making the pattern smaller in some areas over others. I notice that with a single knit, it's smaller than what I'd need with a stretchy fleece. Fleece is thicker and tends to stand on it's own, whereas the single knit has no body. It's like trying to nail Jello to a tree.
I love the finished shirt. I have dreams for it being more. But for now, it's a great starting basic!
My next post will be on my sources for a smooth fitting neckband, the sway back adjustments I made and why I chose to put darts in my knit.
