Another spring top

10 10 2011

I finally got back to sewing last week after a summer hiatus.  I had all this great (cheap) fabric I bought back in May, and a stack of patterns to make some more spring/summer tops after the inspiration hit hard during Spring Top Week.  So… here it is, my spring top, just in time for winter, hahahahahaha!

It was my attempt to make a shirt like this one, and aside from the fact that I forgot to put in the ties, I thought it turned out pretty similar.  In the end, I convinced myself that it’s better not to have things hanging off my shirt anyway; really, that’s just an invitation to be grabbed at by little hands and dragged around like a dog on a leash.  :p

I waffle between liking it and thinking it looks like a clown shirt.  So, if you know me, you might or might not ever see me wear it out in public, I can’t decide.  Speaking of waffles, we made these sourdough waffles today and they were so good!  Mmmmmmmm……waffles…..
