Thanks for the outpouring of love last week. I appreciated everyone who felt strongly about everything and made a point to get in touch. It was a good boost and got me feeling sew happy. I managed to get some time put aside to do something quick and fun.
Let’s get crackin’…
This week, I’m a little behind the times. I’m finally getting around to making a Colette Sorbetto Tank. For those of you who are no stranger to sewing blogs and Pinterest, that’s a pretty beginner project.
Pretty proud of my make this week.
When I left you last, I had drafted up my DIY crop top pattern. I’m pleased to say, the end result was a winner.
Quite a few weeks ago, I wrote about my adventures in crop tops. I spoke about my search for a crop top that fit to my dream specifications and was relatively easy to make. I have an outfit plan on the brain and am more than halfway there.
Last week I made this really great top, so so great. Best top ever ma-
Overselling it? Ok.
It was just missing one minor detail: the things that keep it closed. I know my style can veer into the bold, but even that’s a bit more controversial than I like to get.
Ok. So, last week was…
So, any way, this week I wanted to redeem myself. I wasn’t going to let one crappy sleeveless top define me.
This week is a humbling one. Before we continue I want to ask everyone to remember past projects that were very successful. For the sake of my ego, please!
It’s summer in Canada. An event that is short lived.
I’m looking to throw in as much quick sewing this summer as possible, and a crop top is something that’s both quick and summery.
Setting: Shannon’s apartment
My friend found a great second hand dress that she adored, but in the end it wasn’t exactly what she wanted. The top part fit great but the bottom half did not. Ugh! Mass made clothing. Fits good here, but not there.
