I found this uber-cute stripe at SAS and while it's too thin for a skirt, it was exactly perfect for a Butterfly top.
This one is super easy to make and I think I need some more already.
All you need is to be able to measure, cut and sew a straight line.
I did do a rolled hem on the sides and a bias tape for the neck but since you're using knit you don't need to do that if you don't want to.
First get your measurements.
You will need:
Elbow to Elbow
Top of Shoulder to Hip
Hip circumference divided by 2
Bust circumference divided by 2
Arm Pit to Hip
Once you have those numbers lets get started.
This will be the shoulder line.
If your fabric stripe doesn't work with the fold at the top you may need to do a shoulder seam to attach the front and back.
Mark your measurements and cut according to the pattern.
Do for both sides.
Stitch the side seams.
This may be my new favorite top!
