The newest Elite pattern will be available Wednesday,
April 23rd.   It includes sizes X-Small to 5X Large with Jewel, Scoop and V- Necklines; short, 3/4 length and long sleeves.    I am so excited about our new pattern.  I have designed this top with waist curve, shoulder width appropriate for each size and the sleeves with realistic widths.   I have made a sample of each size also.  The pattern will be $12.  It is printed on heavy paper as always with the Elite patterns.
