Cherry top

Hello friends, how are you? It's been a loooooong time since I last posted something but I was on holiday and couldn't bring my sewing machine with me -tragedy! You can imagine that I started sewing again the minute I went back and so I present you a tunic from the Summer 2010 Female magazine:

I used some cherry (or is it apple?) cotton veil I had been hoarding since 2008, it's definitely one of my favourite fabrics ever and I couldn't bring myself to cutting it :) I love the result, I think it's a cute top and I really enjoyed making it, the construction steps were simple and clear and the pieces did fit together effortlessly. I'm wearing it with a belt because it has a lot of room^^, should I ever be pregnant with octuplets I have a top ready!

Since the tie parts are not lined I handstitched the hem all along them.

I also wanted to thank you for your awesome comments on the July posts, since I was abroad I couldn't publish them at once but I was really happy to find them when I came back! Oh, and I have a new addiction -well I had to find a way to replace the sewing mania:

See you soon!

  2. Welcome back Cecili!!
    Glad to see your post! How cute the top is! It's so charming, the fruits fabric is very girlie, but the bow blouse design makes it very chic and modern as well. Happy to see your project!

  3. This top is so pretty! If I were you I'd wear it every day...

  4. So cute! The fabric is lovely... I was about to ask you where you got it from, but if it's from 2008, I guess I'll have no chance... The front bow is very, very nice!
