Nettie is a print-at-home pattern for a very figure hugging dress or body to be made in stretchy jersey (named after the gorgeous Wanette from Sown Brooklyn!). When I say "body", I'm talking about those things with poppers down below that we sported in the early 90s. I distinctly remember being impressed with my friend Emma Viner's crushed velvet body from M&S that she wore to the school disco. M&S seemed posh in those days, to me at least, and a crushed velvet body? The height of sophistication, particularly in contrast to my own school disco ensemble of carpet waistcoat, denim shirt and leggings. Wait... what was I talking about? Oh yeah, so the pattern is for a tight dress or body, but I prefer wearing less clingy stuff on my bootiful lower half and don't like the idea of a body cutting into said booty, as fashionable as they may be, so I redrew the bottom of the pattern to create a simple top instead.
