I recently ended my affair with knits. I may go back to them later, but I needed a more instant gratification.
Here is a "peasant" type top I finished today. The zipper is uneven, and there are still pattern marks on it (I was too excited to wait until after wash), but I love it. Plus, she does too, but that is beside the point...lol





Now for the little dd's tute on baby doll diapers...

she came to the living room with this...


then proceeded to make this (with help from mom)



obviously my crafting is rubbing off on her.....maybe she will try a different medium next time.

I'm suing! I just nearly choked to death on a little root beer candy reading your post/seeing the pictures! I couldn't figure out why it was a recon (I have a mini-runt-teacup chihuahua, so it looked like a diaper of hers at first) but then I really looked and OMFG! I nearly passed out till I dislodged the candy from my throat.... By the bye, I really like the shirt, too. Gorgeous fabric (and girl!)

That is a cute top.  That is funny.  At least she didn't stick them all over the picture window pretending them to be planes. Cheesy

Thanks! I was happy with how it came out. It is Simplicity 3668 View D. I suppose it could be altered to include a button cuff instead of elastic casing.....and many more. I am making my daughter wear it to school tomorrow....and then I will ask her who liked it when she gets home. I am SUCH a glory hound! LOL
