In Search of the Perfect T-shirt Pattern

I love the feel of drapey rayon knits, but they don't love me back.  Every time I've ever made a shirt pattern with them, they show lumps and bumps that no one wants to see.  But, I keep trying, hoping that someone somehow will draft the perfect easy to sew t-shirt pattern that will show off this beautiful fabric, without showing my love handles.

Bernina 830 Birthday Cake

What could be better than a Bernina 830 for your birthday?  Why, a Bernina 830 cake, of course!  Made by my fabulously talented daughter, Serena, with help from my other fabulously talented daughter, Alyssa. My daughter was picturing someone at my party saying, "Bernina?  Who is Bernina?  I thought this was Ann's birthday!".   -Ann
