I can't show you all the patterns I'm using for the tops, as they are all old patterns from my collection by Simplicity, McCall's and Butterick. All with collars, buttons down the front, some with pockets and all with three-quarter length sleeves. Like this one!But I was able to find some of the fabrics still online to show you.
I am clearly a color junkie! I wear solid color pants and mostly denim of all shades, so I like my tops full of color. I am a "winter" in coloring so jewel tones and brights work well for my dark hair and eyes. Did you have your "colors done" back when that was the "in" thing??? I've always made my clothes, so I found that was very helpful in selecting the best colors for my skin tone.
The bad thing about the early part of the season here in northern VA is that it is still cold! Most days start out in the 30-40 range and end up in the 50-60 range... so I'm still in long pants and jackets...for at least another month.
Last Sunday I cut out 6 tops and today is Wednesday and 3 of them are done!! YAY! And as my hubby is going out of town this weekend, I can sew all day both days!!! Double yay! But, Saturday will be quilt sewing as it is our bee day at my friend Suzanne's house! Not sure what I'll take to work on there yet...
But Sunday will be working on the blouses!!
What are your weekend plans? Save some time for sewing!
God Bless! Polly :-)
