I just barely scraped this top out using what little of this fabric I had. My sister originally bought the fabric for an Anthropologie knock-off top she made (maybe I can get her to send me a photo, it’s adorable!) and she gave me what she had left over. To make it work, I had to omit the adorable pleats at the top (maybe a good idea considering my…ahem…*larger* bust size). For the straps and chest yoke, I used a natural colored Essex linen/cotton blend. One of my favorite fabrics to use, especially in quilting.
Sorry for the crazy amount of clothes-making posts lately. Am I losing all my dearly loved quilty followers? I promise I will get back to quilting soon enough! I’ve got one in progress right now (well, I say that but it’s been almost finished for about 5 months now, just needs binding!).
Is anyone interested in our Europe itinerary? I’d be happy to share, if anyone out there is curious. 3 days!!!!!
