Spring Top #2
I finally got around to sewing up this incredibly popular pattern. I actually haven’t owned it for all that long….is that an excuse? Overall, I really like it. I was originally going to make the longer sleeve version….basically the dress shortened into a shirt. I didn’t have quite enough fabric, though. So the sleeves weren’t quite as long as the pattern called for and I didn’t like the way it looked. Out came the scissors…..I chopped them off and added pleats and a button (to get rid of the wing-like thing that was going on!). Much better and I’m really happy with the results. I “think” I can wear this without wondering if people are laughing at me! Oh man….me and my sewing insecurities. Can anyone relate? Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels like everyone is thinking, “Did she make that? And she thinks it looks good?!” The fabric I used was from a lady at our church…..she was cleaning her fabric stash out. I’m feeling pretty good about adding to my already too-big stash, because I’ve already sewn up two of the five or so pieces I took. Not too shabby!
