The top is a little loose around the hips, which I think works better in my mind than it does on my body. The pattern is developed for pear shapes, and as I am an hourglass, I might want to take it in a little down below. Although, to be real, it doesn't really affect the wearability of this top. The fabric is a cotton/lycra obtained at my neighborhood fabric shop, Nancy's Sewing Basket. It does wrinkle easily (as was shown in my last version of this top) but I don't care. It's a t-shirt people, I'm not going to iron it once I step away from the sewing table. The sleeves and neck binding are leftover from the last top I made. I like that top quite a bit, but it's a little subdued for me. For this one, the only change I made was to shave a little off the shoulders. I may take off some more.
So yes, I have been off camping and it was awesome. We needed some warmth, so we drove down to Northern California. How do I camp with crappy arthritis you ask? We have a little Airstream. And I love it. I can crawl up in the back and read books if I am having a crappy day.
