Top-a-palooza Done!

Yesterday was a good day in the studio.  I knocked out 4 tops, concluding my top-a-palooza.  Three of them were variations of Jalie 2805, basic long sleeve T-shirts with varying necklines...nothing too exciting.  The last one was Simplicity 0568/2520.  I abhor zippers in knits, so I modified the pattern to omit the zipper and it turned into a nice turtleneck top.  I wasn't sure if I would like the pleats at the bust line, but it actually turned out rather nice.  I got lots of practice with the coverstitch with these projects.  Now what to do next...a pants party??? This afternoon I plan to take a hike in preparation for our half marathon...I'll use that time to think about what to sew next.
