Who needs a pattern? A little kimono-like top.

So I enjoy looking at perty patterns...most perty patterns consist of perty woven things. I have a huge knit stash, not a huge woven stash...probably for the best as that could be bad. Anywho...I saw this pattern http://allegrofabrics.com./item_851/...d-Boutique.htm and thought I could do something similar in knit! It's not an exact match to the pattern but not too different from making it up!

Back:



And crappy action shot but I'm quite shocked at how perfectly it fits although it could be a tad longer I suppose. (poor little dood always gets dressed in girly things to try).

I totally winged it. It wasn't that hard once I pieced it out.
