Something for me

I am always sewing for little ones. Either for my daughter or for my shop. So yesterday, I decided it was time for a new top for me. I hit a great sale about a month ago and bought 17 yards of various fabrics for $34! It was awesome.

I decided to use one of the $1 prints to whip up a "prototype" shirt for me. Well, I ended up really loving it. And I loved that it only cost about a buck.

It looks nice with a cardigan.

Or maybe with a belt?

Either way, I'm pretty excited about this little top. It isn't much but I've really been feeling the frump of the stay at home mom lately. This feminine top is really going to help to ward off the frump. And it's comfy, totally wearable, and my husband said it was "really cute". Yes, those were his words. So, it was a hit.

I plan on making a few more with different prints and embellishments. I need a serious wardrobe revamp so this should help.

I used a dress I recently bought from Target as my "pattern". The dress is pretty big and needs some altering itself, but it really helped me get a shape I like. So, I am off to make about 5 more of these :)

  1. What a cute top, Bonnie! It looks adorable with the cardigan, and just as pretty without! I really admire you and all of the beautiful sewing you do...I need to get my sewing machine out and get to it!
