Not only did this pattern use up my scraps, it was super quick to make too. In fact, I made all three in a day, which is unheard of productivity for me. I'm normally rather slow. The pattern was scooped up in a massive haul of half price patterns over at www.simplicitynewlook.com.
As you can see, it's a very basic shape: the back has a little bit more interest as it has a racer style to it. I graded the pattern from an 8 at the shoulders to a 14 at the waist. The arms and neckline are merely folded over and topstitched in place. Not the most complex make, but actually a very, useful item of clothing (or three).
They will all get lots of wear, and I can see myself making more as and when I have single jersey to use up. They are particularly good for exercising in, as they are close fitting which is perfect for my latest fad... hula-hooping!
And I dropped it! Next up... Kids Clothes Week!
