Spring Top Sew Along

Made by Rae is hosting a Spring Top Sew Along. You can click the graphic above to see all the rules and see if you want to participate. These are the two tops I've submitted. I may get one more submitted... we'll see.

First up is the second "Frankie" shirt. I'm still perfecting it, but I really like it. This one is made out of voile from the Anna Maria Horner "Innocent Crush" line. Her voiles are soooo nice. The yoke and sleeves are red chambray.

The next top is called "JJ Redrafted" on Burda Style. The designer is Ana Jan. I found her during Me Made March and her stuff is AMAZING. The pattern she uploaded was only in size 38 (about a US size 8) so I had to enlarge it several sizes. I actually made a muslin and a wearable muslin before cutting into this fabric. Fabric is from the Basic Grey collection "Origins."

I shirred the sleeves to make the bell cuff instead of using a tie. I was just too lazy to make the tie.

I have some more sewing to share and some Easter pics, so I'll try to get caught up on blogging! After Me Made March I think I went into blogging hibernation!
