I'm happy to say I have another entry for the "Tops That Pop" Sew-long at Faye's Sewing Adventure blog. I grabbed my BFF pattern, The Georgia Top by BlueDotPatterns to make a piece that's a quick and easy to wear addition to my wardrobe.
This is a black and pale aqua rayon jersey that is soft and easy to sew. The Georgia Top is just about the fastest top you could ever hope to put together. I cut it out and made it on the serger in less that 1 1/2 hours. Can't beat that!
I have one more top coming for "Tops That Pop" and don't forget to check out all of the fun things people are making.
Faye at Faye's Sewing Adventures has a "Tops That Pop" sew-along that I joined. The guidelines are pretty simple, make a top by April 30th and she posts it on her blog. It's a perfect sew along for now because spring and summer tops are easy and fun to make. She posts a few projects every day and people are making some great stuff. Lots of cold-shoulder looks and fun prints. It's really inspiring....check it out and the Pinterest board too.
I made the True Bias Sutton Blouse and it's been perfect. I've been wanting a simple t-shirt type tunic, simple but not too simple and this fits the bill perfectly. I made it out of a rayon challis I picked up at Hobby Lobby of all places. I normally just pop in there for notions or patterns but I walked by this and stopped. It's a lovely color and so so soft.
It's not easy to see but the Sutton Blouse has a yoke that extends from the front to the back so doing variations on this pattern would be really fun. It has a high/low hem but it would also be nice as a long tunic. This is a don't miss pattern friends. It can build up your wardrobe pretty quickly.
I made two more tops for the sew along but I've yet to photo them. I better get to it! Thanks Faye!
