The Ace top is fitted with a funnel neck that sits comfortably away from the neck. This makes it a great choice for many knits, such as jersey, merino, rib knit, and even sweater knits. Since you have so many options, think about how you want your top to look. Do you want a lacey sweater knit to layer over a camisole? Or would you prefer something cozy? If so, pick a comfy French terry. If you don’t know where to start with fabric, think about what would feel best against your skin and pair well with your handmade wardrobe.
