McCall's Peasant Top

Hello All!
This is Michelle, Emilie's sister in Law. I'm really excited about being welcomed to this fun blog. I love sewing, but can never bring myself to sew unless I have to. So, this will be great for me! Ok, here we go. I sewed the spaghetti strap top out of the 4 because summer is coming and I basically never go without a cardigan. It was a pretty fun and easy pattern. I did a size smaller than my measurement called for, and it was still way big. I had to take it in a few inches on both sides. As you can see it's still pretty big, but I love it anyhow. I love the way it hangs. I did pleats instead of gathers. It only took about an hour and a half after cutting everything out. I plan on making the other one with sleeves out of a tone on tone black plaid organza. Again, I'm so excited to sew with you all!

    Now I really want to change my mind and do this project after all.
    Maybe I CAN find the time.
