I decided to stop quilting and make some knit tops that aren't too big for me.
I JUST HAPPENED to come across a pattern while looking around the internet as I do every night. It is from a company with the strangest name:
Evidently they make patterns with hidden pockets. Go to the website and have a look around. It is at www.saf-t-pockets.com
On the home page, you will see this pattern called "FAST N FUN"
It truly is FAST and FUN. It is $8.00, and very well worth every cent, IMHO.
You can print it out and paste the sheets together. They went together easily and had the best alignment I have ever done.
I just measured across the bust area of the pattern, and I cut out the size closest to mine but not less than. I used the Size M.
Wonderful instructions, and the pattern fit me perfectly with my usual three adjustments that I make to every pattern on earth:
Full Bust Adjustment
Actually, in the gray one, I didn't do anything to the back. The side seam swings forward, but you really can't tell unless you are looking for it. I fixed the paper pattern back before cutting out the blue version, and it fits perfectly.
Here is the FIRST one in a darling gray knit with shiny silver dots from JoAnn Fabrics. I bought it many moons ago, so have no idea if they still have it.
I no sooner got this one finished, I decided to make several more. There are THREE collars to choose from and two sleeves.
The following one is NOT FINISHED. All I have to do is sleeves and hems. So fast.
I really like the collar. Have never seen one like it. I hate collars up around my face, and I don't like turtle necks. This is just perfect!
Gotta run. I'll show you more pics of this fun pattern as I make them.
I am making movies of Terry's tee shirt quilt business, but I have to upload them tonight. You KNOW how long that takes around here.
