More sewing for meeeeeee

Susie topI am not sure if I like the way this top makes me look enORMously busted, but it sure is comfy! It's the Susie top from Ottobre Woman, Autumn/Winter 5/2010. Continuing my love affair with knits over here, I have a couple more top patterns lined up to go. But oh, I wish I had more options for prints in cotton or bamboo or wool jersey (I don't want to go the 100% polyester route). The little bit of leopard skin on the trim of this one was quite a fashion risk for me. I'm not at all into animal prints. But I've got to tell you, I haven't found many options out there, and far far fewer that I actually like. Can anyone point me to a source for printed knits?

My favorite source is gorgeousfabrics.com -- it's not a huge selction, and they can be a little pricey, but their prints are just lovely and she even recommends patterns for each print... Looking forward to seeing more knit adventures on your blog!

I agree! I would celebrate my bust ... if I had one like yours! Louise

I think you look gorgeous and the good thing about the emphasis on the boobs is that it makes you look super skinny. And the animal print is a great touch to jazz up a dark solid.
