Tampa, Florida, ...
A long-sleeve asymmetrical, gathered striped top using stretch jersey. To get this looking like the model pic, I had to make some adjustments. First off, the pattern is way to big when you factor in the stretch in stretch jersey. Second, start the right-side gather much higher than instructed (like 6" from the armpit) and gather to about 9" instead of the 11" shown in the instructions. This will ensure you get the asymmetry correct.
Stretch jersey that I found on eBay, of all places, because I couldn’t find this particular stripe in my local fabric stores.
