I finally have a favorite. I am in LOVE with this top. I usually go for printed fabrics, which I love to rock - but this heather gray, comfy t-shirt/light sweats type of fabric has me swooning!
I had this Butterick pattern for a while and had even traced it out many moons ago. Yesterday I decided to dig it out and give it a try. A marriage made in heaven. There isn’t anything to really dislike about this project. I made it in one evening while catching up on a few shoes (House Hunter, Property Virgins, & Law and Order). Not one person at work thought that I made this one. When I divulged that I made it last night, two co-workers went as far as to tell me they had been certain that this was a store-bought purchase. I'll take that compliment! The only alteration I even had to make was shortening the length for the version of the pattern that I picked (version D). I also used 1/8" elastic in the sleeve casing instead of 1/4" because I used my last bit on my New Look Tunic.
I also had a blast taking a 10 minute break with my co-worker Carol from Cece's Closet to take a fun parking lot photo-shoot. Since I didn't get a chance for lunch today, that break was exactly what the doctor ordered.
Tonight I will try to reorganize my patterns. I have been taking them out of their spot and stuffing them in different doors, bags, closets, and purses. I know there are a hefty amount that I have on my list that I won't ever get to if I keep loosing them around the house. lol
