I am going to buy simplicity pattern 2599, patterns for tops. Would I be able to use ITY knits for this pattern, it doesn't call for knits. Thinking out loud it might be more difficult to sew, and might not have enough body.

I think you could use a knit. You might have to go down a size?
I just made a nightgown that called for a woven and used a knit. I had to take it in a lot. Of course that could be because it was a nightgown and had a ton of ease.

I looked up this pattern and think it would be great in a knit. Even better actually, because the ruffles won't be sticking straight out from your chest. Just cut it smaller than you normally would. Good luck! Write a review when your done. (But don't blame me if it doesn't turn out - lol.)

Thanks! You gave me the needed courage. I placed an order with Fashion Fabric Club including a pretty mod print ITY in aqua , white and chocolate brown, and a pretty lemon yellow. I'll be making the print first, and if it's a clunker, use the yellow for a TNT pattern. I really think it will work tho!
