Fabric Love

 

Hi there,

Sorry I have been slow getting back to my blogging , the start of the University year is always busy for us. One going  back to interstate for his last year of study and another starting her first year of College and University life.

Our eldest moved house at this time as well so it was all hands on deck for a while.

Even so I have of course been sewing any chance I get.IMG_0467

I saw this image and had to share, I don’t know about you but I can honestly say I have been striving to be an artist my whole creative life. I am always keen to learn more and improve my skill set and love to find new and better ways to create.

One of the latest makes I have to show you was a couple of cotton voile tops. I fell in love, as usual ,with the fabric but couldn’t bare to cut up the pattern so I went for simplicity.

Voile Top 1

Love this print !!!

The Other Top

I made 2 Tops ,one as a gift ,and one for          myself.

The pattern is a self drafted simple fold over , edges finished, selvedge was the hem. With a line of stitching at the sides a really comfortable top to wear.

My sister in law was the recipient of the other  top and she loves hers as well.

Here are more pics

This top has been wonderful in our warm summer. I wore it a lot .

What is your most comfortable summer make?

Happy Sewing ,

Sue 🙂

    That is a great drafted pattern you made! Is it a pullover,or does it have a zipper in the back? It doesn’t seem sheer enough, at least in the picture to be a voile, but I love it, and I love the way you used it. You have the greatest sense of fun in your clothes. I love it!
