This top was intended for my friend, but she said it wasn't really her style, so I'm keeping it.
I used 2 yards of poly silky print that's been aging in my stash for years. Seriously, like at least 4 years. It was a Joann's purchase, and I shortened the pattern by 2" to make my 2 yards work.
I opted for the boat neck, instead of the V-neck, and paired it with some wonderful Michael Kors pants I got on clearance last year. I little more "trendy" than usual for work, but a few compliments were collected, so I'm counting it as a keeper. I figure that if someone liked it enough to ask me to make one for them, it's not a wadder. Yes?
Wasn't my friend/colleague so nice to take my pic? This is my school, and we have the same prep hour. It's easier to do this than stage a "photo session" at home (and it's 30 degrees outside). My students know that I sew, so now even a few of the boys will ask, "Ms. B... Did you make that? It looks nice." Such nice kids... most days!
