My “Viva Las Vegas” inspiration comes from celebrating our wedding anniversary with a Champagne Toast. I made this top specifically to go with the pants I made in a previous challenge.
The fabric is lightweight, very comfortable in hot weather and perfect Resort Wear. I embellished with a orange flower button to the front for a pop of color and green flower embroidery stitches around the bottom for an interesting detail.
The pattern was pretty straight froward, it is a Very Easy Vogue pattern but it’s a classic cut that could be paired with a lot of different looks. I’m really glad I made the shirt since I find myself often deciding to make another dress. It’s time to branch out – I may even try a skirt next.
So as the old saying kind of goes…what ever happens in Vegas stays in the Yucatan! Cheers.
