To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

« on: November 13, 2008 11:14:42 PM »

Flutter sleeves!  I was and still am obsessed with flutter sleeves so when I saw this pattern I had to have it.  All the while I had this gorgeous yellow green fabric that I picked up at M&L that had to find the perfect pattern.  Together they made this really fun top.  Although you cant really see it in this picture, I wore it with a plum/purple tank underneath.  I was loving this combination!  I truly felt like a peacock with such vibrant colors.

Pattern: New Look 6648, View C

Pattern Description: Easy tops with gathered waistbands - 3 variations

Pattern Sizing: 6-16.  I upsized the pattern to 18 but probably didnt need to.

Fabric Used: 1 7/8 cheapy t-shirt fabric from M&L

Notions Used: none

Pattern Alterations: None really except lapping the fronts more than stated in pattern.

The pattern worked up quick without much fuss at all and I love the ruched band at the bottom.  The ruched band alone will require that I make one of each of the other 3 versions with the exception of view B which just doesnt do it for me.

The necklines on these shirts are for Paul Bunyan shoulders because they are huge so be forewarned that you might want to try and modify it to be a little smaller and less bra revealing.

Ooh, that's lovely!  The colour looks gorgeous on you and I love the crossover and the sleeves.  It looks like that fabric drapes beautifully.  Gorgeous!

I like those tops too! And this one looks gorgeous on you. That bright yellow is very flattering on you, so go out and show it off a lot.
