Crazy, two posts in one day. I know. But I wanted to get some info up about my second Spring Top before voting begins. Not like I hope to win or anything. *cough, cough*
I just made a peasant top... doesn't sound very exciting, I know. But I LOVE the fabric I used. It is sheer (gotta love those Downeast undershirts!) so it is really cool, and it has metallic thread running through it, making it shiny as well. And it is in the blue/green family. Do you know I love blues? Oh, you do? Oh. Anyway, I have elastic in the neck and sleeves, and elastic in the inside-middle (under where the belt is) so if I dont' have a belt on, it still cinches up on my waist and makes the peasant top less flowy. Which has the effect of making me look pregnant, of which I am NOT thankyoumuch.
So, confession. This is even more comfortable to wear than my yellow beauty. I have been wearing it all day. And will wear it out on our date tonight. Cuz I feel totally cute in it.
I bought 3 yards of this fabric for $2.50 a yard, and totally was an idiot and cut right in the middle of the fabric. Don't know how that happened, but it did. So I have really odd sizes of leftovers. I wonder what I will make with those??
***Updated: At the library today, someone totally came up to me and complimented me on my top. It was so fun to answer with "thanks, I made it!"***
