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!!
