Spring = Leaves

At least it seems that way for me. I started the Cross Bodice top from the new Spring/Summer Vogue Knitting which has a beautiful mid-section leaf design.

So far so good. The yarn is Lion Brand cotton, I believe it is cotton ease but I can't find the sleeve so I don't have the dye lot but as you can see it's a lovely shade of olive green.


Up next will be this Leaf Yoke Top in a light grey.

Whipped up a quick top, Vogue 8634. I will probably need to wear a cami the top is scandalously low cut, I did raise the next line but apparently not enough.

This is more of Trudi's gifted fabric, I hope I can wear it.


I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Just Needs Buttons

This is Simplicity 2365 View D minus the pockets with the wild print what would be the point.

This is a really quick and easy pattern of course I had to complicate it because the reverse side of my fabric wasn't conducive to the tab sleeves. I added a facing and all is well.

I may make this again using a lightweight khaki fabric that I've had forever. Hopefully Spring will jump start my sewing, my winter sewing was an embarrassment, I'm going to blame it on the fact that we didn't have winter this year. A challenge would definitely help, (not so subtle hint to Ms. Faye).

I can't believe that I didn't have enough buttons for this blouse, oh well I'm off to the fabric store because it's going to be in the 80's next week and I'm wearing this top.

Happy Sewing.
