Have had this pattern since 1996 – Yikes! And forgot to say anything about it’s being completed until lovely Josée’s comment reminded me. Thank you, Dear Reader! (Do visit her delightful site!)
It’s a reliable go-to when I want something relatively easy (read mindless). This time the medium weight of the stretch cotton fabric dictated a few changes.
Choosing style A (4th from left), I kept the elastic waist, but did lots of fitting. That made a zip necessary, but as it got rid of bulk at the top (where it was sorely needed) I gritted me teeth and managed a somewhat passable job. Then added a bar-style hook at very top.
Not my greatest effort by a long chalk, but with that busy & bright pattern I decided not to worry. Wish I’d taken time to add a pocket, too, but…
Sometimes you just gotta get over it & get on with it!
