    Is there anything out there for MEN. I am trying to find a pattern for a popo/tennis top. I went to JO ANN's and in all the pattern books MC Calls ect not ONE pattern. Everything for men is shirts pants or jackets. I have been searching the web for mens free patterns to no avail. It seems that everything is for WOMEN Whats UP !!!!!

    I have been sewing for 64 years, it would have been much easier to have had something like these videos to go by. Instead I had to teach myself, and then teach my mother what I had learned. I am looking forward to going through each lesson.
