|Simplicity 8052 with Henna print by Girl Charlee|
The side benefit from teaching teens to sew, is ordering "in style" fabrics. My teens go crazy over just about anything I order from Girl Charlee. So when this henna print came in for a project, I just had to use a little. It is so soft and feels like a great pair of PJ's.

Since this is a pattern made for wovens, I went down a size and used a size small.
I did alter for my shoulder slope.

Since I used a knit, I went down a size and also added clear elastic to the shoulder seam and high waist seam. The elastic helps the knit keep its shape during the day. I did my normal "wonky" shoulder slope adjustment and I am delighted with my comfy tunic top.
