I knew everyone has been making these lately, and I literally JUST finished mine and I am in love with it.  I am worried though that it's a little snug though (it's a little hard to get out of).  I am definitely going to make at least one more though... I wonder if it would work with a tshirt knit (anyone tried this?).  I also think I will probably lengthen the sleeves a little on the next one, they make my arms look fat, eek) Please ignore the PJs pants (I actually made them last week, yay!)

alright, onto the pictures...

Really cute fabric!  Cheesy As I posted in another BbW thread, I'm sure the top would work with jersey/stretch fabric if it's modified to fit better. This may help with taking it off an on. If you experiment let me know about the sizing!

This size is a little snug on me, so I am thinking about buying the other size and going up a size (this one is the size 12, I figured it would accomodate my mommy bosom but apparently I was wrong), so I wonder if the size 12 in stretchy fabric would work...

I will have to give it a try when I work my way through my "to sew before going on vacation" list (it's quite LONG) and I will let you know how it turns out. 


And yes stick, it is a cotton, but it's also got a little bit of stretch to it too (just a smidge though)

It looks good to me, but I've made a couple in size 10 and it does feel tight right around the high bust area...the arm hole is pretty shallow, maybe this is part of the issue? Looking forward to seeing a knit version!

cute! Maybe you could add a zipper on the side to make it easier to get in and out of?

P.S. I could not ignore the pj pants lol! That fabric is really cute. Is it cotton or flannel?

Isn't it adorable!  It's super soft flannel, I love it, I swear I have worn them practically nonstop since I made them, haha.

My latest version of this top.  It's my second from a tshirt knit type fabric (the first was a test run to make sure the sizing was right, it's just plain peach colored and boring, not worth posting, but if you look really closely in the picture where you can see the laundry basket you can see it, it's the peach thing in the basket, haha).  I made them the same size as the other one, since the other was a little snug in the bust and I love the way they fit.  (It hasn't been hemmed, and actually in the picture I hadn't sewn the elastic together yet, just safety pinned).  Anyhow, here it is, I love this fabric, and I also have some more in an ice cream print that I am going to make another one out of, so staytuned for that one.  Sorry for the crummy mirror shots, all the ones with the timer turned out really bad.

 

And here's a closeup of the fabric (and the ice cream fabric too)
