I wanted a simple top that didn’t have a bunch of darts/seams. Let the fabric stand out at its own party.
The fabric is sheer so I chose to underline with a blue cotton blend. I have used this fabric to underline a couple of times. Glad I bought so much of it when I spotted it in Palm Springs YEARS ago.
Also, why is it when you have a million buttons in your collection it is so hard to find buttons for projects?! I needed 3 but could only find ones I liked in 2’s. Finally came across these. Faux leather. Great colour. I think they were spare from something I bought but I can’t think of what garment they belong to…
The buttons are on the back at the top but I don’t need to undo them to get the top over my head so they are mostly decorative. And with my super-short hair they will actually be seen!
That’s it! What have you been working on? Have you been summer sewing? I haven’t been but have SO enjoyed getting back behind the needle!
‘Til next time! Put a bird on it!
