Well, all my hopes for more time to work on this leopard knit kind of got blown out of the water last week and into the weekend, but I did manage to make some progress before then:

The pattern I’m using is for a woven, not a knit, but I the only modification I’m making for the knit is I’m leaving off the side zipper, as a knit should stretch enough to pull it over my head. I’m happy to report “so far, so good” on the fit.

Now it just needs the skirt. Surely I can find time to attach two rectangles to this top, right?*
