Welcome to another edition of Sew Our Stash!
On the last Thursday of every month, Marissa from Rae Gun Ramblings and I try to share at least one thing we’ve made for ourselves to wear during the month! I love it – it really challenges me to keep sewing for myself. Even if half the time I sew up my item on the last Wednesday of the month! :)
This month I’m sharing my newest top and I just love how it turned out! For the pattern I used the Marigold dress and top from Melissa of Blank Slate Patterns. I’ve had this pattern on my to-do list for so long and I’m soooo happy I’ve finally made it up!
The pattern comes in a dress version and a top version, and short or long sleeves. I made the top version (it has a peplum!!) and the cap sleeves. I think it’s perfect for summer and I used a vintage sheet for the fabric!
I added a little ribbon at the waist, just for a little extra color. The peplum is such a great length too, it kinds of adds a little dressiness to it.
I think I need to make up the dress version next – and maybe add in longer sleeves!
Make sure you head over to visit Marissa – this month she has some super cute Harry Potter things to wear!!
Love the style of this top and the fabric….good choice. Where do you find the vintage sheets?

So pretty, Bev. Love the fabric, the pop of color with the ribbon tie and especially the peplum. You did a beautiful job and have inspired me to sew something for myself.
That is SO cute! I love the fabric, I can see why there was some just sitting in your stash. :)

Hi Bev, I love the fa bric you used. But (sorry, new to garment sewing) what is Vintage Sheet fabric? Is it actually a sheet, like a bed sheet? Thanks.
