My New Retro Top
I love love love this fabric. And it was only $3 a metre, so $6 in total for the shirt. It is a 2 way knit and this time I knew to adjust the pattern. It is a Jalie pattern that calls for a 4 way stretch. The only place it is a bit snug is at the elbows, so I will have to adjust a bit more for the next time.
The funny part, is when my sewing friend came over and I told her about the snugness, she immediately had to try my top on to see if it fit her. And it did, as she is smaller than me. But I think I will keep it as I love the fabric. Perhaps if she is good for Christmas Santa will bring her one!
