First top made up! This is the light weight knit I blogged about here. When I started sewing I realised it was a bit more light weight than I thought! Still, I think it looks nice as a kind of tunic dress. And being so light is probably a good thing coming into summer.
This is the pattern I used - picked it up at an op-shop somewhere along my travels thinking it was a nice basic shape. Obviously I omitted the sleeves, cowl neck collar and side button details. I didn't need to alter the actual shape of the bodice too much. Just shorten and add a band.
Can't you just tell I LOVE posing for the camera... NOT! That's the problem of making clothes for yourself and you have a sewing blog. I kind of need to post pics of the clothes being worn on the person they are made for. I am thinking this summer I am going to be making a lot of clothes for myself. I enjoy making clothes for the girls, but they have soooo much already. It's time to stock up my wardrobe! Especially with clothes I can wear to work. This of course means I will need to practice some better modelling moves - blue steel anyone?
Saskia took some of these pics and she did alright! She loved telling me how to pose until she had had enough and said "I want to take some more pictures... but not of you". Oh ok!
I have already started on my next project... looking forward to showing it to you as soon as I finish it!
Bye for now, xo
