Kwik Sew basic top

 This top came from an old Kwik Sew master pattern book.  It's a basic sweat top.
 I used up some scraps of fabric.  The gray and blue in the shirt is some med weight sweat shirt fabric and the sleeves are a lighter weight sweat shirt fabric.  I used black rib knit for the neck and the waist hem.  I took some design liberty in in the blocking.  I basically put my traced pattern on the scraps to see how much fabric I had.  Then I cut the pattern up, placed it on my scraps, eyeballed some seam allowances and began cutting and sewing.
The book.
