I bought the fabric for this top last October at JoAnns. I knew the second that I saw it, that I wanted to make myself a top with it. I couldn’t decide how I wanted that top to look. Finally last Thursday, I just went for it. I sewed until I was done. I didn't use a pattern for this. I’m not a huge fan of patterns. I basically just patterned this after a shirt that I already own.
I call it my Fall into Spring top, because of it’s Fall colors. I know that I have said it before, but Fall colors are my favorite colors no matter what time of the year. Plus, I am sucker for anything mustard yellow. I love this fabric!
This top is very versatile. (Ignore my lame modeling poses and weird faces. There is one thing that I know for sure, I did not miss my calling in life as a model.)
You can wear it with a belt.
Or on a breezy evening, you can wear it with a cute sweater and another belt.
Or you can dress it up with a cute skirt. And wouldn’t this look cute with a chunky belt? I am getting back into belts these days :)
A few things about the top. I added a pleated sleeve. I also added 1/2 inch bias tape around the edge of the sleeves and neck.
And since it is Spring Top month over at Made by Rae. I figure I will enter this one.
