Good evening all!…I hope all is well with everybody; I’m doing all right too….Not doing too much this evening except laundry and relaxing before the work week…but earlier this evening I wrapped up another one of my sewing spells with some mending and UFOs…now I don’t care for repairs; and the UFOs are usually so buried that they continuously go unnoticed but today I didn’t mind it much at all…this mad sewing spell started Saturday….I made quite a few things (I shared them all on Instagram) but this post is about one of the tops…**and I’ll make sure to try and blog about the other stuff too**…
Now this top was the first project of my latest sewing spree…its Butterick’s B6172 View C….I used knits (y’all know I LOVE knits) but I don’t believe it called for ’em….in fact, the view would look extra purty in a slinky fabric I just know it….I’ve had these two knits for a while in my stash and put ’em together to whip up my new top….I didn’t realize the view was to have contrast but my compulsive need to buy fabric allowed me two fabrics that blended together perfectly..My stash game though; yeah buddy! ….Sewing is often just so awesome like that….Rosy color, soft red, mad cool drape, and cut outs make Butterick’s idea for this top A-1…..absolutely love how it came out and cant wait to rock it….I need more tops; I always need more tops…..this pattern I believe has at least 4 views….
Now let me share these pictures because I kinda wanna skim some of my sewing magazines for ideas….so many of them have full size patterns and I’ve never used ’em!…I must remedy that….this Vogue one is too good….Whatchall’ been making?….Direct me to the makes!
Butterick’s B6172 View C in sheer knits…I believe the Rose colored knit came from Fabric Mart and the other one I got from Hancock’s….I’m STILL sad about Hancock’s….uggggghhh WTF…..
Side one; notice it only shows one layer from this side…..
Back shot of the pretty flowers…I love this fabric…I had been hoarding it of course because it was too pretty to cut…I got this pattern and thought: “Okay I guess I can cut it now”….
Side two; check out the layers that show on this side….darlin’ huh?….just darlin’….and the top looks complicated but so isn’t….very cool I tell ya’ what! (in my Hank Hill voice)
Toooooo pretty….hashtag sew all the knits!!!!!
