Ok, I spoke with Carolyn today and am wishing I would have spoken with her earlier (I scheduled our class through her son while she was away).
I called to ask about fabric for the Simplicity pattern, and it turns out she has some reservations when it comes to using Simplicity patterns for knit garments.
I told her we had also considered a second pattern, Kwik Sew 3844. She said she prefers Kwik Sew to Simplicity when constructing knit garments (she gave a handful of reasons I can't exactly recount at the moment), but this particular Kwik Sew pattern is sleeveless, and she suggests that we go with a pattern that has sleeves.
Ultimately, she suggested Kwik Sew 3766 (http://kwiksew.mccall.com/-prod...).
She can order Kwik Sew patterns to her store, but we'd have to pick them up if we wanted to order, pre-treat, and cut fabric ahead of time. She would sell us the pattern for $10 each.

Can't find the pictures for the vote. Also, I have a very old machine, will it be adequate to sew a knit top?
