spring top week entry 3

4.30.2010


This is my last and final entry for Made by Rae's Spring Top Week.  I do have one more top lurking on my sewing desk right now, but it's just not going to happen for the contest.  I thought I could squeeze it out because I've made a dress from the same pattern before, but I realized this morning it's requiring too much seam ripping, argh!


So this is the top I did finish last night. 


I used Joel Dewberry's latest line: Modern Meadow.  I think this top will be a good one to wear with khaki pants or shorts.  I usually don't pick navy blue in any of my fabrics, so the one fabric I did pair it with was some scraps of chambray.


I do recommend this top for beginners, it's very easy to understand and comes together pretty quickly.  I had made a version of this top last year and it was way too big and so this time I went with a size 8 even though according to my measurements, I should have made a size 14.

  1. This is such a nice top that is very versatile.
    I have the same pattern but have not had a change to even look at it yet. I was planing on sewing, so I can participate in the Spring Top Week with few more tops, but (as you all know :))life with a toddler and a baby is a never ending to-do list with "sew for myself" category at the very bottom.

    All of your tops look great and so well made! Good luck!

  2. Phew! You've been busy! I had to throw in the Spring Top Week Towel. My shirt was too short and I didn't have the material to lengthen it. BOO!
    Yours are great! Good luck!

  3. Your top is lovely:). I made this top as well and I agree, I should have ignored my pattern sizing. I was a 10 according to the pattern but it was tent-like. Next time I will make it longer, use a drapier fabric, and a try a size 8.
