The “It’s Just a Top” Top
Fabric: Navy lawn from Stone Mountain and Daughter, $12
Pattern: Sorbetto top from Colette Patterns
Notions: Embroidery floss
Time to complete: About 3 hours
First worn: October 2012
Wear again? Sure
So, the photo is blurry and you can barely see the top I made. It’s a modified Sorbetto from Colette Patterns (see all the Sorbettos I made last year) and there’s isn’t much to write about. That all said, I wanted to get something up since it’s been so incredibly long since I’ve contributed a creation to The Sew Weekly. That doesn’t mean I haven’t sewn an outfit here and there. I actually made something for the polka dot challenge that I wore twice already. But then I never found the time to take photos wearing the thing and the chance to post drifted away.
If I’m so meh about my top this week, why even bother posting? Well, I figured there’s no harm in breaking my streak of not posting. After all, that will only make posting something next week a bit more of a possibility.
Plus, I want to show you all that I’m still alive and well. I just came back from Utah where I spoke at The Sewing Summit about making a Handmade Wardrobe. A day later I threw Penelope’s Fairy-themed 5th birthday party. Hopefully — fingers crossed — I’ll post more about that all.
