I finally remembered to get the Threads magazine from the library so I could remember the measurements of the shrug.  I did the ballet shrug, not the kimono or bat wing.  I like it.  It was worth 20 cents of photo copies.  This was just some fabric I had laying around.  It doesn't take much.  And it only took about a half hour, from cutting to the final seam.  Smiley

Thanks! 

I'm not sure I can explain it better than in the magazine.  Its the August/september 2005 issue of Threads Magazine.  I copied the two pages at the library so I could keep the lay out and measurements at home.  If I can figure out how to get a decent drawing together to post online, I will.  Smiley

I am SO going to the library wednesday!!!  I can't wait to make this.  How much fabric does it take?  I would still love a tutorial just in case. So nice!

I found it!!!  My local library had the mag, so I photocopied it. 

I will post a tutorial soon for all three styles.  This pattern makes a batwing style, kimono style or a dancers shrug. 

You only need a 1.5 yard/meter x 1 yard/meter piece of fabric with 25% stretch (the pattern says this means a 4" piece of fabric will strech to 5").

I will post the complete tutorial soon!

Great job!  I have that magazine too and one of these days I'm going to make one. I prefer the ballet shrug too.
