Its very hard to think of jackets and even long sleeved tops. Of course this is why I never sew many of my winter clothes because by the time I finish the weather has warmed up again. I know I'm going to jinx this weather now talking about it and then I wish I had sewn more. Oh well, hence the title continual procrastination.
I have been loving looking at all the items people have made in Me Made May, love following these, they are very inspiring. I didn't do this because I thought I wouldn't have enough clothes, I didn't realise you could vary your pledges, maybe next May.
I thought I would show a top I made last year from an OPP Vogue pattern 8514. The pattern is for stretch fabric but it is so loose I'm sure you could use a woven fabric. The self timer on my camera is not working anymore hence the photos on the hanger and model. What I love about this pattern is the back.
The fabric is a jersey from Spotlight that is very pretty but doesn't feel nice it has a strange texture. It also gets quite hot to wear but it drapes well and suits the pattern. My favourite design feature is the back.
I love tops that are not tight at the back so they don't get caught up. Also I'm not continually tugging my top down, not a good look.
Hopefully sewing this week and finishing some garments for cooler weather.
