This week I was deep into sewing muslins of my next pattern and a little bit sad that I didn’t have time to participate in Selfish Sewing Week or the Spring Top Sew-along. But then I realized that my pattern is indeed a top that I am sewing for myself. So I’m killing all the birds with this post and sharing a couple of the more wearable muslins I made. I’d be winning so hard if I was doing Me-Made-May.
I really love these fabrics together. So much love. Hey I made those jeans too!
And here’s a V-neck short sleeve version. I had run out of poses at this point, having already used up my “flash a big dorky smile at the camera while standing like a soldier”, so I told my photographer friend I’d give a few tried-n-true blogger poses a shot. She was surprised that there was such a thing, but I quickly reassured her that oh yes, yes there are.
This fabric is kinda my favorite. It looks like an a simple cream colored knit, but it’s actually a 50/50 cotton/poly mix, super drapey, with neon slubby thread knitted throughout. I warned my local friends already that I’m wearing it every day for ever.
