I have been trying to find a V neck, princess seamed t-shirt pattern and the closest I can find is McCalls2818

Is there any reason I couldnt make this from a knit fabric? I realise I'd probably need to go down a size or two but other than that, can you see any reason this wouldnt work as a knit?
Thanks :o)

For jersey knits, I would cut the back on the fold and eliminate the buttons, and check the amount of sleeve ease (I don't like ease in knit sleeves). I would eliminate neckline facings & bind instead.

For doubleknits, which have little to no stretch, I'd bind the neckline rather than any facings but otherwise would sew as if it were a woven fabric.

For sizing, I'd do a muslin first before using the good stuff, either an extra length of the good stuff or a similiar knit that you don't care much about, just to be safe.

I saw a v-neck princess t-shirt (for knits) pattern just the other day, I'll try to remember where. Coulda been Christine Jonson.

Thanks for the advise.
I should have added in my first post that I would eliminate the back closure and just cut on the fold.
If you could remember where you saw the knit pattern, I certainly love to know.
Thanks :o)

Vogue 8323 princess seam t-shirt, but scoop neck. That would be easy to convert to a V-neck.

The one I'd had in mind was the Trudy Jansen #707 also not a V-neck but easy to convert.

Either of the above would be far easier to convert to a V-neck than to reduce sleeve ease, adjust sizing etc on the pattern for wovens. Hope this helps!

Pesonally I'd use Vogue 8323 and add a v-neckline from another pattern. I think it would be a whole lot easier. This knit, princess seam pattern is very popular for a reason.

Vogue 8323 in all views is my absolute! favorite top pattern. I think you would get great results for the look you are after.
