I've been waiting to get a picture of my top for Spring Top week over at Made by Rae. It's taken a while. I did finish it last weekend. But I wasn't happy with it, so I needed to take it to mum's so she could pin the sides where I wanted it taken in a bit. It flares out on the pattern quite a bit & it was making it feel very maternity like. So I finally got it taken in & finally got a new picture today. It looks ok. I am glad I can put it away in the cupboard now until Spring as it is only Autumn here in Aussie right now. I won't be sick of it then I hope & maybe I will even wear it.
Info about it is that it is the Summer Fling pattern by Make it Perfect. I did a large size. I was hoping it would fit as the measurements didn't go up to my bust size. But it fits well. I did make the sash that goes with it but won't be wearing it. I can't wear it under my bust. Makes me look pregnant & I really cannot be bothered with questions about if I am or not! & I'm not! I can't wear the sash around my waist as it just slides up. Not a good look.
The fabric is Sunwashed by Sweetwater for Clothworks. I used the blue daisy version for the main fabric. Then needed a contrast. Was tricky to find something to go with the shade of blue so ended up with the white version of the same for the contrast. Looks ok.
I may see if I can find some other fabric now that is meant to be used for clothing & try another one to see if it hangs or sits better. Maybe if this one gets washed a lot & softens a bit it may hang better. It's not awful I don't think, but well, I don't really know. But I would like to experiment with some other fabric sometime. It won't be now for spring top week anyway. I have had the pattern for a while & Spring Top week was good motivation to get it made just because I needed to try it. The standard of the tops over there is very high so I was a bit reluctant but here I am all the same entering just for the heck of it.
Other than that, it has been a busy week with all sorts of house type stuff going on, plus a bit of work & stuff. It's all good.
I have Thai Pumpkin soup in the slow cooker for dinner tonight. I just made Anzac biscuits because it seemed appropriate since tomorrow is Anzac day & I made cheese sticks too which are for BJ to try. Something else to keep him interested in food, or get him to eat something else anyway. It's all good.
