So I am in desperate... need of some cute summer things. Mainly tops.
I have really wanted to sew myself some things.
(I haven't sewn clothes for myself since Emily was a baby)
So I had been eyeing the Amy Butler Keyhole Halter Top.
It is adorable.
Being that well, I can't justify buying a pattern for myself that is 18 dollars... in
a store that I was looking at it in... I had the idea that I
may just be able to find a cute little tutorial in blogland.
So, While looking at Ucreate she happened to feature
Sweet Verbena and her simple bow tie top.
I made this with some navy Jersey knit and Amy Butler
I definitely had to rework the fabric amounts. But I made it with how she
suggested and then tried it on... IT was Huge on me. So I took it off cut it down
and tried it on again.
I wore it out yesterday and got TONS of compliments from people I
didn't even know.
(don't you love when you make something and people are like where did you get that?
Oh, I made it. )
So here is my try at trying to take some pictures of it...
Not very good.
My husbands photography skills were enlisted as we were heading out the door last night
