I picked up a knit summer dress at Ann Taylor Loft that I rather liked the fit of, but knew I could make it myself (I did buy and wear a few other things I don't intend on returning  Wink ).  The back of the dress was a bit more involved than I thought it would be with about 7 pieces just on the bodice plus interfacing, elastic and elastic thread.  Fun times.  It probably took me 3-3.5 hours to draft and make it, so not too bad.

Then I made these tops for me drafted from some tops in my closet.  The first two are actually the same pattern, just modifed a bit.  They don't look all that spectatular with even hems on the hangers, but they fit fine and look decent.  I've worn two of them already, but didn't take pics yet.

Thanks for looking!  Grin
