This top was made with Vogue V8495
I made it with a hounds tooth knit that I picked up at Joann's waaayyyyy back when I was still Stateside.
So umm yeah, it's been in my stash for over five years. For shame.
I have to admit, I was harboring a fear of this knit. It wasn't super cheap, so I was scared of making a mistake and wasting it... Friends, I'm here to testify "Fear" is a real bitch.
I'm sick of her. I'm kicking her to the curb.
What holds you back?
Do you kick Fear in the face like a Ninja?
'Cause I want to know you if you do. ;)
Rubes and I decided you all would loooove to see an action shot. Just look at her composure, in midair mind you! Meanwhile I have Andy Warhol hair.
I cut a size 10 as according to measurements I should have, but I think an 8 would look better. I constantly have issues with pattern fitting and sizing. In one pattern I'm easily a 12, in another a 4. What gives? Do you have issues like this?
With this top I figure on fat days I'll leave it out, and on skinny days I'll belt it in.
More often than not I just can't s t a n d anything restricting me/my waist/my booty/my feet, etc etc...
Call me Boho, I was born for it.
For St. Patty's day I made this tshirt dress for Ruby. The top part is a recycled t shirt that I appliqued the rainbow onto (it's felt) and then hand stitched for added detail. The bottom is a remnant I had from a quilting project, cotton chevrons in yellow, that I thought really brightened it all up.
She was well pleased.
We are off to bake some shamrock cookies! nom nom
See you soon friends.
