What can I say? I’ve just been on a sewing binge lately. I made this top two nights ago and just had to share this one before the other two I have made. Why? Because this is my *favorite*.
Last post I said I wanted to make some knit maternity clothing because so far I had just used cottons. Well, I was walking around and Walmart and decided to check out their $5 for 5 yds of fabric rack. I’m usually wary of this rack because a lot of the fabrics are cheap, but I saw this ribbed knit one. I felt it, smelled it, opened it, and gave it a good check. I fell in love with it (well not literally).
It was a pretty color (and it has stripes but you can’t really tell too much. they are subtle) and I knew it would be perfect for something.
Then I remembered how I had adored this top from Anthropologie.
It came out wonderful. Didn’t have to redo a thing. Now those sewing times are the times I REALLY like. And now I have plenty left over to make something wonderful for my daughter and the baby girl on the way! I think I might give it a try again when I’m not pregnant in some light airy fabrics, more like the Anthro top.
Now I’m going to relax tonight and spend some time listening to worship music while the little one is already asleep in her bed. I love quiet nights. Enjoy yours!
