Sister Suzy has a couple of new tops. Anybody recognize this old Simplicity pattern? Sister Suzy wanted some tank tops to mow the lawn in. I dug through my pattern stash and found this one. Made a copy of the pattern onto butcher paper with a few alterations to the pattern and sized it up for her.
This is the first experiment. I had her find some fabric amongst the quilt fabric she could live with and whipped one up. I had to put darts in the armholes to get rid of the gap. I wish pattern makers would draw in darts in the armholes for people with larger cup sizes than a "B". I also had to shorten the under-bust darts because the pattern was for a 'teen' or 'junior' size.
She likes the fit so I proceeded with the fabric she had picked out at Wally-World. (Rant-on! By the way Wally-World, when the fabric is gone from the El Dorado, Ks store the money you made with the purchase of this fabric will be spent elsewhere because we couldn't find a garment she would wear. Just telling you Wally World you are shooting yourself in the foot cause there are other places to shop! Rant-off!)
So I will be making some more tops but will be changing up the neckline a bit. I think a couple of V-necks and a couple of one-button henley style necklines would look nice too.
The laundry is calling my name.
Have a good day!
