I finally made a Sewaholic Cambie! It’s been on my to do list for a while and my “make 52 items in 2016 challenge” means that I’ve actually completed it! I bought Sewaholic Cambie a few years ago after I heard the … Continue reading
This is one of my favourite things I’ve made, and I completely forgot to blog it! I made this back in March 2013. Previously I used Simplicity 2444 to make this dress. However, I always wanted to make it in … Continue reading
I am loving all of the different coloured jeans for Spring! I think I buy a new pair a week. However, I’ve struggled to find nice tops I can wear with them that are just as fun as the jeans. … Continue reading
Yeah, so I skipped May and June and July are combined. My bad. If it counts, I’m making up the rules here, so in May I made a dress, and well, that’s even more than a top; so it counts. … Continue reading
Yes, I want the wardrobe of a Disney character… And maybe not the first one you’d think of… And it’s not a Disney princess, as much as I do like them, and would love all of their dresses! The other … Continue reading
March has been and gone, and I haven’t sewn a top. I lasted two whole months! I’ll just have to try and squeeze an extra top in somewhere.
I like to think my reason is lack of fabric, and money to purchase fabric, but truthfully, I’ve been lacking inspiration. Until now, when I go away tomorrow for two weeks – go figure! So here I am, blogging some of my inspiration, so when I get back, it’s all here!
I’m still inspired by fluttery sleeves, so that is definitely an option, especially when paired with lace. I tried on a cute top just like this at Myer, but it was much too big. Black, with fluttery sleeves, with just a little bit of lace poking out.
Then, there is always the option of remaking my February top for myself. I found some purple cotton (rather than the devil that is chiffon!), and so this is also a possibility. I’ve even seen a similar top, except that instead of a lace collar, it has a scalloped collar. Adorable!
So, my next goal is to sew a top for March, and April, using these as my inspiration. I will not get behind any more than this! Right?!
