Last year a friend introduced me to some fantastic one day sewing workshops that happen locally approximately once a month. I am now kind of hooked, what could be better than 6h sewing time, child free, without interruptions and with a teacher on hand to answer all those questions I usually just ignore when sewing at home.
Recently I attended one of these sewing days and decided that instead of packing my bag full of things for the kids I would take sewing or ME! In fact so far the year has been mostly about "selfish crafting" and I'm kind of liking it. The fact that may children have both grown and will need new winter wardrobes this winter isn't lost on me though so I know I will get back in the loop of making things for them.
Anyway a top for me. The pattern I chose was Burda 7828, but of course I didn't want it quite as written.
I grabbed this pattern in a destash for about $3 and the fabric I used I also got in a destash for about $6 so all up a very cheap wee top. I cut a size 34 and the only adjustment I had to make to size was to take a little out of the top of the sleeve seam as it was a bit too wide across the shoulders for me.
So here is the end result (obviously not ironed, oops).
And here are a few, particularly rubbish, modelled pics. Remind me never to let DP tell me how to stand for photos again :-P
