So I actually had this top done before the Gatsby challenge because I got the order confused in my brain. (I think I just really wanted to do some polka dots!!) I had it all done, accessories ready for pictures, and then I realized I was wrong. At least it wasn’t super involved and I still had several days to start and finish the Gatsby challenge.
The construction was basically the same as my Yellow Challenge top. Except this obviously isn’t a knit so I had to be more precise in my measurements so it could fit over my shoulders. I also flipped down the neckline more this time so it wouldn’t cut across my neck so much.
The yellow belt I’ve had since before I owned a sewing machine (made it by HAND!! so don’t look too closely lol), but I made the headband special as per my husband’s recommendation. I really need to make more ribbon belts in other colors so I have more options with accessories!
So yes, I was in New York City last week on vacation with the hubs. He had never been so we did a lot of touristy things, like the Statue of Liberty. The title of my post comes from Ghostbusters II and a Bill Murray line about Lady Liberty being tough and I kept saying it over and over with my best Murray impression. Husband was nice enough to take a few moments for a quick photoshoot. We had amazing weather and really enjoyed ourselves. And of course there was fabric shopping!!
