Pattern: New Look 6735. This is the top

Fabric: Cotton/Lycra knit from Girl Charlee

Notions: Thread & seam stabalizer for the shoulders. Wooly Nylon in the bobbin for the hems.

Size sewn: 12 in the shoulders, bust & waist, grading out to a 14 at the hips. I ended up using a 1/4" SA on the side seams instead of the 5/8" as the pattern suggested. Just wanted a tad more wiggle room.

Alterations/Design Changes: This is the exciting part! I added gathers to the neckline & sleeve caps to take this from a "t" to a top. I blogged those alterations here. Also, since I messed with the neckline, I drafted one myself using this tutorial. It worked out well! I also did a double fold hem instead of the single fold that the pattern suggested.

Likes: Everything? It's a super fast sew and I was able to squeak this out of 1 yard of fabric. I really wish I would have made 2 or 3 at once, but I wanted to make sure it worked out first. Next time! I love that it can be dressed up or down.

Dislikes: None. I thought I'd dislike the center back seam, since I don't think I've ever seen it in RTW, but it really does provide some nice shaping.

Time to Complete: Not too long, but I took my sweet time with it. It could probably be finished in just a couple hours.

New Techniques: Pattern drafting

Total Cost: $6 for the fabric, everything else was from my stash! SIX DOLLARS!
