Working it Out with Patterns for Pirates (P4P)

I swear I love my Facebook Groups.   My FB sewing groups are full of inspiration, motivation and information.  Because of them, I have learned all types of tips, tricks, techniques, online fabric stores, and independent pattern companies outside of "The Big 4" (Simplicity, Butterick, McCalls and Vogue).  

One of those independent pattern companies is Patterns for Pirates (P4P).  I learned about this company while admiring the posts of Knitpop's FB group.  Once I joined the P4P group, my timeline began to flood with Peg Legs and Raglan tops and other patterns from the P4P collection!   I felt left out so I had to get in on the action.  With that being said, introducing my first P4P ensemble!

Simplicity 8160 - Knitpop Tank Top....and unmentionables

I was introduced to Tri-Blend fabric last year, thanks to Knitpop.  I ordered 2 yards along with several other types of fabric, in order to become familiar with the differences in feel/texture/flow.  This Tri-Blend fabric is heaven!  It makes me want to escape to my place of tranquility with some popcorn and a huge glass of sweet tea (the freshly brewed kind, not that other stuff from the grocery stores).
