"Let's Kick Some Stash" 2016 Stash Smashing Sew-A-Long (DARE YOU TO SAY THAT REAL FAST 3 TIMES- LOL) that's taking place January 4th through 30th that has my attention.
"Kicks" the most stash (yardage wise) during the sew-a-long. If you are interested in joining the sew-a-long, you'll need to contact Alethia via Facebook message (@SewMuchTalent). This week's garment: Tops.
You all know that I am definitely a top lover, especially those made of knit fabric. I plan on knocking out several tops this week in honor of the sew-a-long. At least that's the plan - we'll see!
First top of the week:
YARDAGE USED: 2 1/4 YARDS
MY SYNOPSIS: I've about had it with patterns sized (sm-med-lrg-xlg,xxl). I choose my size based on my bust measurement, and what did I end up with? A gia-norous fit that's what - even the hood is huge. I guess I'll just have to take a chance when using this type pattern sizing from here on out and just go with a size smaller. Or, better yet, try to remember to choose my size based on Nancy Zieman's book. Why, oh why can't I remember this information when choosing sizes???

Here's a picture my top after shaving several inches from the side seams.
WILL I MAKE IT AGAIN?: The jury is still out on that one.
What is your experience with using patterns sized (sm-med-lrg-xlg,xxl)???
