LOVE this shirt ... found a great tutorial and I thought I would share it with you. Check a tutorial at Welcome to the Good Life, she used these videos: drafting the pattern and constructing the twist top
P.S. ... if you need a basic knit top pattern, check out BurdaStyle's Lydia ... it's only $1. (I use my own pattern, but I know not everyone is as crazy as me ;p) I hate that it has a faced neckline, but that can easily be changed by using any of these other tutorials that I posted on Craftivision

I've been helping some young women in my area make some pioneer clothing ... I was looking for FREE Pionneer Bonnet sewing patterns and figured I would share the links ...
and I found this super simple Pilgrim Bonnet made from paper ... easy: paper and staples!

I just found the BEST site for free design croquis. Lots of different body types, including children, babies, boys, men and of course women. Check out Designer Nexus for a variety of croquis. You're welcome! (I'm bummed ... I just bought some croqui templates!!)
Croquis are templates used for fashion design and fashion illustration. (They also have a whole section of just flats!!) Love this website.
