I'm in - I just need to find the pattern.  Also, I thought they were done in jersey... What fabric is it?

They be done in jersey, but mine are in cotton. Another Craftster (erincatherine) just posted a tunic she made in jersey from a ByW pattern.

Yeah, that's awesome. The sleeves have JUST the right amount of puffy...they don't look too little-girl, you know? Love your fabric choices and the tee is adorable too! Did you make that? I LOVE clotheslines.

Another knitter here who stumbled upon this on your blog.  I have been sewing bags lately and loving it, although I have NEVER sewn from a pattern!!  This may just have to be my first!   Grin

Do it--I've been working up the nerve for a couple of years now (no joke), I read everything I could and I was fully intending to make my first garment out of muslin--I think it's called a toile? Anyhow one night I just decided "I'm ready!" and made the first one. It was really so easy. Just like knitting, there is no time limit, you just take your time and read the directions. The second one was much more intuitive, it all made sense how the pieces fit together. And mistakes aren't irreversible like I thought--they just take more time to rip than knitting =/

That is mega-original. I love it!

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!

Uhhh...I think I'm just going to make a zillion of these, as my schedule allows. This is still too small, but I bought a new pattern and will recut my REAL size before making another, I promise.

The back is a little blousy...

Coolest part--my own label! Got it at Namemaker.com:

Hope all you master sewers are at least slightly amused by how thrilled I am by this bread-and-butter sort of garment! Cheers =)

I love it!  The fabric is gorgeous.


I really want to see a picture of the Hello Kitty sewing machine too! Cheesy

Ha! It's available online at Target.com, and it seriously kicks ass for a new sewer. It's sturdy and slow and not intimidating at ALL. I bought a big girl Janome too but I haven't tried it out yet. I'm starting slowly!

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments! I swear, Craftster love should come in pill form, there is nothing like it! I totally, totally encourage all you knitters to try this out. I knew that this pattern would be a perfect first try since there are only five pieces and elastic details which seem to be an 'easy way out' approach--it's sort of the sewing version of the garter stitch scarf. I tell you though, I really wasn't expecting such a wearable top out of this! It has a lot to do with the fabric but I have not taken this thing off since I finished it! I think the loose boxy, stand-away from the body look is tres chic at the moment and it's comfy as all get out. I was already making another immediately after I ironed my last seam on this one.

Good luck, can't wait to see more of these!
