Tidy Twist Top

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
