Being a faithful "What Not To Wear" watcher, I wanted to make a top with some structure.
I chose this "New Look" pattern from the rack at Wal-mart. I know, I know.. but it's here, and it seems I'm always there.
New Look 6407
I made view "B", and could not be happier with the way it turned out. It fits like a glove, and I really like this hot pink fabric I found at Joanns. It was back with the quilting cotton, so I may like it a lot less if I see someone carrying it around on a bag, or heaven forbid, in an actual quilt.
I followed the pattern exactly, and I hope to make some of the other views soon.
While making these projects, I got more comfortable with my rolled hem foot, used my serger for the first time, AND my button hole foot! I've been sewing for as long as I can remember, but mostly just the basics. I've always let my mom do the "fancy" stuff. Thanks Rae for motivating me to try some new things!
