Get Tanked!

click to enlargeLast Sunday, with a tape measure, graph paper, pens, and a calculator, I came up with a tank top pattern by measuring my own curves. I spent half a day knitting and sewing via my Bond machine. Then I slipped it on while squealing in delight because it's almost perfect, except a bit too cropped for my tiny beer belly, and the seams are too tight to block it longer. After this hectic week, I'll revise and knit up a different color.

I had to arch my back just so to stretch the fat evenly across my back. I used to be a skinny little thing, and since gaining 20 pounds these past few years, I like that my girls are bigger and my butt is more J-Lo, the back fat has got to go!


  1. Back Fat? Whateva. you have a figure most women would kill for. You look the same size that you were in HS.

  2. you ain't even fat!! you are so cute! and your tank is adorable! great job!

  3. Oh my goodness! I just had to laugh because you sound like me complaining about myself when everyone says there's nothing wrong with my figure. But you know how us girls are. I thought I was the only one that used the term "back fat". Good to know I'm not. LOL
    You did an excellent job considering that you drafted this pattern yourself. I need another Bond machine. How fun! You go girl!

  4. Oh, I would love to have your figure. You always looks so cute! I won't be able to make Knit Nite (if there is one tonight but hopefully I'll see you in a couple of weeks at the next one)
