I had it in my head that I’d do this great post of a parade of summer tops–all of which I’d make in the span of a week or so. Well, so far I made two tops a few weeks ago. This red top is the same pattern I made last year where you cut out one giant piece and stitch it together. I really like this, although it’s a bit loose at the shoulders. Liz and Eleanor happened to come over and I asked for a picture of me wearing the top, which turned into a hilarious photo shoot.
I also made another one of my standby pattern, this time extra long tunic length. Ugh. I just realized I didn’t even take a picture of myself in it! This is the lamest photo free post ever! So, it’s a coral colored top, with a green patterned border. On deck are a pile of awesome fabrics, including two lightweight voiles.
Other sewing projects to come are an apron for Clark’s kindergarten teacher as an end of year gift (he requested it have a big heart on the front, awwww…). I’ve also been working on something sort of secret. This would account for not having sewn tops for myself or skirts for Tabby, as it’s what I’ve spent most of my free time on. Would love to post lots of pics, but really can’t. But here’s a little teaser..
