Quote from: crazyquilter on April 17, 2019, 06:00:35 amI am counting this SWAP a success even if I only get half done by the deadline. I am sewing for myself again after many years of not doing so. I have a TNT pattern that I really like and is easily varied. I have a second pattern that I think I will use a lot and will work well with refashioning thrifted garments which I like to do. I have six dresses that are in constant rotation in my wardrobe if you count the muslins, which I do as they were preparation for SWAP.

Look at the official pattern photo: the center of the sextagon should be right between your bustpoints! But, the pattern as such is a wonderful design and I really like your colour blocking! hope you will find a way to adjust. I also like your fractal top... good to have a rewarding pattern at hand!
Quote from: boppingbeth on April 19, 2019, 05:45:08 amI don't know if I can finish. Between the whole return to work stuff and tMy son in law who went in for emergency surgery at the end of February, it has been a really rough two months. He spent 5 weeks in hospital, 17 of that sedated and intubated in ICU. Two surgeries, 2 cancer lumps removed along with part of his colon. Now comes the long healing process where we drive back and forth an hour and a half each way to help food prep every week so they can get through. I haven't been near a sewing machine since it started. If I do finish, it will be the two week miracle, lol.
Quote from: Melinda_B on April 19, 2019, 06:54:14 amI keep coming back and looking at this. Surely it wouldn't be that difficult to use a raglan sleeve pullover pattern and draft your own fractal lines? Draw the grain line on the pattern first, so it's in all the triangles, then just draw your triangles in with the centre in the middle of the bust. Add seam allowances, cut and sew. It's not a fitted top with darts etc, so should be reasonable easy. Worst case, move a dart into a seamline, for the larger busted ladies who need a dart.No doubt- the issue is because it's modelled after a geodesic dome therefore equilateral triangles. If you take away that restriction, it's just lines on a sweatshirt....
