I had a pattern for the shorts, but made the top up as I went along. It turned out OK. That's my best cheesecake pose
I always push it with the fabric, ekeing it out, often sewing bits of fabric together to make a piece big enough to cut a pattern piece out of, but this time I think I've achieved a PB (personal best). Pushed it to the max. There's just about enough fabric left to make a jacket for a mouse.
