Alright, so these photos aren’t great. They were taken by my 5-year-old on the iPad earlier today. I installed a WordPress app and wanted to see how easy it was to post from it. I accidentally published to the blog! Whoops!
Anyway, here is the second spring top I finished:
You probably recall from my last post that this pattern is a free tutorial from Made By Rae.
The floral print is from Jo-anns. Our local store was just renovated, and it is SO MUCH BETTER. They actually have TWO bathrooms for customers (with potty training children)! They used to send us to TJMaxx for that.
The coral cotton is an Amy Butler solid, “mango” I believe.
All in all this one came together pretty nicely. I opted not to do the pleats, and just gathered instead. I don’t think it is quite as polished this way, but still cute! You can see that I made little slits on the sides and was happy with that move. Might even make them deeper.
I’ll try to edit this post with a better photo as soon as I have an adult around to help me. Still, I’m thrilled to be sewing wearable items for myself! I urge you to try it!
Have a fantastic weekend!
