Black Striped Knit Top #4

Here it is....top #4 for me!  This is the most practical top I've made so far.  I will be wearing this every week this summer and plan to use this pattern again and again.  The pattern I used was Simplicity 3692, another Built by Wendy design (as was the blue striped tunic) - $1 special I picked up during a JoAnn sale :)  This pattern offers three lengths and 3 sleeve options.  I used view C, sleeveless with an elastic bubble hem. 

The fabric is a nice black stretch knit that I bought at a thrift store and the pink front yoke is an upcycled t-shirt from my stash.  I love the comfort of knits and this top sewed together in less than an hour.  Cheap and fast....what more can a frugal mom ask for! :)

I like it! I live in "cute" t-shirts year round!
