Somehow I have never gotten around to getting the daughters to help me make a duct-tape double of myself, so I have to have Madame Merp model the clothes. Just another thing to put on the to-do list. The fabric for these tops also came from the craft thrift store at the same time I bought the royal blue haul.
This knit is very light weight and might have some wool content. It is almost impossible to photograph, but at least I gave it a try.
UPDATE: Wow, this top turned out to be fantastic on the trip. It was comfortable, and best of all, I could wash it out at night and it would be totally dry by the next morning. I still have some of this fabric left so I may just make another one of these tops, but I think I will lower the top level of the insert about one inch. I cut this version with a high insert because I knew I would be bending over to help my MIL in and out of the car multiple times every day, so this was comfortable and modest.
These tops actually have a much nicer shape in real life and have the same comfort as a baggy T-shirt but look much better.
Today I am working on a mundane pillowcase for a car pillow. We went shopping for an inexpensive pillow and were shocked at how much bed pillows cost in some stores. We finally gave up and went to Target and got a nice soft fluffy pillow for about $5 instead of $85. I am going to make a pillowcase that is much smaller than the pillow which will squish it into a more dense shape. This whole thing makes my questionable impulse purchase of some blue fabric with giant white letters all over it at the craft thrift store not such a waste, since I am going to use it for pillowcases and maybe a tablecloth.
