Start with a staple

After about 19 trips to Home Depot I didn't have a lot of time to sew. I did manage to squeeze in this grey cowl neck top, it's Butterick 5388 the fabric is 1.50/yd Wal-Mart knit.

Lighting makes the color look different it's actually closer to this, the fabric was so thin I lined the front/back but not the sleeves, I didn't want to have to wear a cami and it's still pretty cold.

This is the second time I've made this top, this was the first time I used a sheer black w/white polka dots in the summer. Great quick and easy top.

At least the drain is back together but now the sink is clogged ARGH! It's always something.

Have a great week.

Thank you for your comment on my pants. Getting here has been a labor of love. I did use Simplicity 2700 before, but back away from it because there are so many pieces to the pocket and because of the contoured waistband that kinda whipped me. I do think I'm going to check it out one more time.

Nice top. The color is beautiful. The drain? I would have to call a plumber because my mechanical skills are zip!

Lovely top... what's going on with the pipes?

I really like that top. It looks as comfy as it does stylish!!! Plumbing's not my thing.
