Oh, hi there. You'll often find me casually leaning on bookshelves. Can you tell I'm not a style blogger? Have I ever posted a a photo of myself here?
Ladies and gents, the first sewing project I've completed in our new place. This is a super simple top from Simplicity 2188. No buttons, no zippers, and only 4 patterns pieces. Easy peasy. This would be a GREAT project for a beginning sewist. I used a nice orange cotton blend (I think) from my fabric stash. I ended up using the wrong side of the fabric. The right side had a sort of a sheen to it, which is fine, but not really what I wanted for this top.
Pleating detail at the neckline.
Right before we moved, I did a major closet clean-out, and ended up seriously lacking in the shirts/tops/blouses department. I actually made this to layer under jackets and cardigans, but I kind of like the way it looks on it's own as well. Not exactly practical for a Chicago winter, but I'll trot it out solo come Spring and Summer.
