This past week was another filled with tops! I really do need to focus more on making bottoms.
9/12, Monday I wore the purple top I made using McCall's 6120 back in June. I really love this style, which is why I have made two versions of this top and three versions of the McCall's 5974 dress with the same design features. I paired the top with my gray knit cardigan to make it more work appropriate.
9/13, Tuesday I wore the brown and aqua chiffon top I made back in April. It is from the OOP Simplicity 3535. This is only the second time I have worn it. I actually like it better than I originally did. While the yoke around the shoulders is still a bit large this picture makes it appear to fit much better than it did the first time around. I have a white tank top on underneath it and I am not a fan of it as it dulls the colors of the chiffon a bit. I think that if I get a brown tank it will look much better.
9/14, Wednesday I wore the blue lightweight cotton top I made for my SWAP last year. The pattern is Simplicity 3504 from the Project Runway line. I really like this top and keep thinking I should make another version soon.
9/15, Thursday I wore my green knit wrap cardigan. The pattern is Simplicity 2603. I don't think I ever posted any other pictures or reviews of this pattern other than a brief mention of the sleeveless top I made to go with it. I really like the look of this top and the pattern is very easy. That being said there is not enough length on this to wrap it all of the different ways the pattern shows. If I make it again I will definitely add more length.
9/16, Friday was a repeat day. I wore the same white top I wore last week. It was chilly and I don't have any other long sleeve shirts that I have made to wear. I should also put a few of those in my FESA plan.
9/17, Saturday was also a repeat day. I wore my Simplicity 2223 jacket that I also wore last week.
9/18. Sunday was a lazy day. I have been fighting a terrible headache and scratchy throat all day so I wore pajama pants that I made last December. I really do not want to get my yearly cold already! I have been loading up on the Emergen-C vitamin packs all day. I did however take an hour or so to run to Jo-Ann's and pick up a few Butterick patterns that are currently on sale for $.99. I got B5956, B4954, B4827, B4377, B5685. I also got the patterns for Katherine's wedding dress (BP249) and Pippa's bridesmaid dress (BP250), which are not listed on the Butterick site. How odd! Not really sure I will every make the wedding dress but I feel that it must be in my collection. The bridesmaid dress at least has another version with a shorter length that make it more usable for me.
