Step One (photo right)
Lay your most true to form tank top or shirt over your sweater (inside out)
Pin your shape around the shirt allowing a half inch of extra space along both sides.
Try the sweater on, leaving it inside out. Adjust the pins as needed.
Use a straight stitch to sew along the line of you pins.
Remove pins and cut along the side of your straight stitch leaving a 1/4" of fabric.
Zig zag or serge edge to prevent fraying.
TAaaaDAaaaa!!! Flattering sweater... to rival the Sweater Girls. Just stay away from the "Bullet Bra"... ;)

Here are some photos of the recently completed "Girl's" version of the super hero cape. Personally, I think the darker version is unisex, but I know a few girly girls who love pink and purple. This is for them :)

The floral fabric is vintage and it perfectly marries all the colors in our home... even if it is a Little House on the Prairie-ish (I like to think it is Anthropology inspired)... I love to mix modern and woodsy items, especially with fall tones.
One Yard Wonders book. They are a bit formal for baby items, but I thought they would be sweet for a night out with Mommy and Daddy. I definitely plan on making some more in some more practical prints.
