Spring top week



I decided to take this pattern and fabric out of the stash and sew it up for the spring top week over at Made by Rae. Overall I am pretty happy with it. I love the pattern. I feel like it has a good 1950's throwback kinda feel and is very flattering. It was pretty easy to sew up as well. Once again, however, I am not so sure about my fabric choice. I have wanted to introduce more color into my wardrobe lately, but I may have gone overboard. I feel like the fabric is a little juvenile, especially in such a large quantity. I will still wear the shirt, but maybe layer a cardigan with it to tone it down. I think I would try this pattern again in a more subtle fabric.

  2. I love your top. I have the same pattern, and went to make it the other day before I realized that I had grabbed the wrong pattern size when I bought it, grrrrr. It's a very cute top though, reminds me of one of my favorite tops from Anthropologie.

  3. I love this top - the shape is awesome but I actually think the print is my favorite part! Fun and springy, but the dark background and abstract shape of the flowers give it some sophistication. I could see it out on the town with a fab pencil skirt (or running in the backyard with the kids in jeans!) Awesome.

  4. I LOVE this top. I'm going to find the pattern very soon and try to make one of my own. I also wanted to tell you that I love the color. Just rock the bold prints and leave the cardigan at home :) The first spring top from a few weeks ago is slow going for me because I never really used to follow patterns and I'm so rusty on my sewing. I also got distracted by making my brother a t-shirt blanket. But, I'll hopefully finish it one day and post it on here ...

    Just found this link when I was looking up this pattern on PatternReview.com. I just wanted to let you know what a great job you did with this top. You've definitely convinced me to make it.
