Here is the pattern and pictures of a V Hem Top I really like.  It originally started as a straight hem slightly flared top.  To make the original top I flared the side seam in PE and redrew the bottom to allow for the slight flare.

 This is a Sophia Knit.  Original ease was Chest and Hip 2.5 with the semi fitted waist.  I wanted flare but didn't want a straight side seam.

 I wore it a couple of times but felt it could be better.  I took out the original hem and recut the hem with a V.  Both the front and back V.  Love it now.

That is really pretty. It is always nice to have something a little different. How did you finish the neckline?

Do you like Sophia knit? I am not a fan of polyester and have always tried to use rayon or cotton knits, that is, until I tried an ITY knit. I found one that I thought was so pretty that I broke down and bought it. I love ITY knits, now! But, I have been afraid to stick my toe into the pool of other polyesters.

I like the feel of the Sophia. They also hold their shape well. Pants do not bag. Neck finish is a 3/8th fold over and double stitched.

Love sophia knit. I buy it at the Sew Expo each year and make most of my clothes out of it.

I really like that top. Nicely done. Time for me to sew some more knits!
