Hi! I had so much fun sewing along with project run and play the last session. I thought I would be all over this one, but sadly I haven't.
I'm still sewing, but I haven't been able to work the projects on my table into the themes so I've been sitting them out and watching everyone else's amazing handywork.
Truly lovely ladies, honestly I'm constantly blown away at the level of ability everyone manages!
So this is what, week 3?
I knew I'd be able to get this one to fit in with her spring wardrobe. I have been working out pattern details for this shirt. The last one I made had a gathered waist, which I also loved, but I wanted to leave it out and make it a bit more dress-like and billowy.
Ruffles x4 in the front
They are a little difficult to see because of the pattern, but there are three darts in the back of the shirt.
Those buttons come from my grandmothers stash. I know I've said it before, but she was the best sewing teacher. I have so many good memories of visiting with her and either being glued to my sewing machine making beanie baby sleeping bags, book covers, or embroidering pillowcases in the my recliner that sat next to hers.
No wonder I love sewing so much!!
I'll wrap up with the details.
This top is self drafted by me. The first one I created using the gathered waist is HERE .
I've been really trying to either utilize patterns that I have or create my own.
The material is from my mother in law (MIL) and is by Linda Brannock & Jan Patek via 1996.
Are you loving it as much as I am??
