So anyway, I went into my sewing room and got to work…I had tie-dye on the brain too so I decided to combine my want for a new top with my need to dye something…I tie-dyed one of the endless t-shirts my huny so generously donates to me after only a couple wears and measured it up…I used my fashion design ruler again; I swear every time I use it I feel like I really know what I’m doing…hell, maybe I do because it came out super cute…I got compliments on it the entire day I wore it….I love your top!, That’s a cool shirt!, Did you make it or buy it?, were some of the comments I received while proudly styling my newly refashioned tee….
I also took a recent trip to the thrift store and of course scored some super cool sewing stuff…I got 4 patterns for only a dollar!!!!!…and with me being on a “top” marathon lately I decided to make a top that pair with a maxi skirt I whipped up a few weeks ago…I went to my trusty stash and grabbed a bright and beautiful Cobalt blue pique fabric I just bought recently from Hancock’s….I made view C but I modified it quite a bit….I didn’t AT ALL want the loop embellishment that the pattern called for so I made mine with a center seam down the middle of the front…the back has a cool pleat that is just so darling IMO…I also used Red thread for contrast…I know I will be making this top again, its just one of those tops that will look cute with so many fabrics and prints…..andddddddddd my snazzy new shirt cost me less than $3 dollars to make!…Another thrift store score!!!!!…Well I will show the photos now….brace yourselves; they are cayute!…(wink-wink)
Super cool neckline and contrast thread huh?….;)
Tried to show the back pleat a little…its nicer than this picture…maybe it’ll come out better when I wear it…
