If you have been following along on Instagram or Facebook, you will have noticed that I have been doing a lot of sewing over the past week. All because of this one top. The zippy top by see Kate sew. I fell in love with it on Pinterest & I knew when I saw this fox fabric that they would go together like strawberries & cream.
I am completely in love with the exposed zipper on the back! Such a nice change to a hidden zipper. I love that it becomes a feature.
It is a very easy top to make and even if you have never sewn a zipper before, you will want to give this one a try.
I have decided that instead of always taking photo’s of the clothes that I have made on coat hangers, that it is time for me to step out from behind the camera. Even though I felt like an complete idiot modelling in a park on a busy long weekend! It is also a great way for the rest of the family to learn how to take photo’s with the DSLR. These ones were all taken by my 15 year old! I have also been playing around and learning more about Photoshop Elements so you can expect to see all of my photo's with some cool action that I have learnt how to use! This action is called vanilla pop and I love the more mellow, subdued effect. Kind of like an Instagram filter and we all know things look better with a filter! Well, some things.
If you are looking for an awesome top to make, this is it! Not a stitch of knit fabrics in sight so you can use up all those cotton fabrics from your stash! I know most of you know the stash that I am talking about!
As I make myself a new clothes, I will be sharing the patterns here on the blog. I am falling head over heels in love with PDF patterns & the ease of finding what you want & being able to print it off in just a few minutes. If you have any PDF patterns that you think I need to try, please let me know.
