Patterns in motion...

Well I have done enough wittering on about this pattern over the last week. Before I put it in its envelope to return to its owner I thought I would show it to you. Its been a great and useful pattern, so much has been made form it. I have made three toweling robes for my babes using the poncho pattern, numerous baggies (trousers) for my wee man, the T'shirt pocket top was cut from this pattern (although quite easy to do without a pattern) and my friend has made waterproof all in ones for her children. Not bad going hey? Sorry its not a great photo, at least you get the idea. So if you have children, lots of fabric and want a quick fix this is for you. Also I have used the binding pattern to make my own Bias for other projects. Now this was one I bought a few months ago and have only just pulled it out, I love the style especially being able to move from sleeveless to sleeves, I thought it would be quite versatile. I am slightly worried as I am rather, well how shall I say this...curvy in the bust department, so potentially this might not be too good a look on me. Anyway its my next planed sewing project, fabric selected and I just need to get on with it now.

I'm rather busty myself, and I have a few tops in the same vein. They work well, never fear!

I love that pattern too. I am also curvy but I think it may work. Can't wait to see your finished top!
