THE BEST PLACE TO START...at the top - where else? 


Do you suddenly feel YOU HAVE NOTHING AT ALL TO WEAR?

If you too find yourself in this situation... then we need to get to work right away - and we might as well START AT THE TOP.
So if your wardrobe is lacking in the area of tops/blouses/tunics, or even tees, it's a great time to join this TOP CHALLENGE!

I've proclaimed the first 15 days of April as the official STARTING AT THE TOP Challenge.    It's a simple sew-a-long that will last only 15 days - leaving us lots of time for other sewing projects.

So ladies and/or gents:
•Choose your fabrics,

•Choose your top or blouse patterns,
    . add a new twist to a TNT pattern, 
    . refashion, 
    . or maybe even self draft a new design
•No quotas,  •No limits.

...and by April 15th we will have more wardrobe options.  So come one, come all it's so simple to join, just 2 things to do:

  1. COMMENT your interest on this post by Saturday,  March 31st. 
  2. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS in the comment (ex: kathy at yahoo d0t com) so I will be able to add you in as a author on the STARTING AT THE TOP blog.
Only two more days to sign up.  I'm looking forward sharing, and seeing your STARTING AT THE TOP spring/summer creations. 

Remember to add you EMAIL ADDRESS.  


NOTE:  YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL INVITE THAT YOU WILL NEED TO RESPOND TO IN-ORDER TO BE ADDED TO THE CHALLENGE BLOG.

  9. I tend to sew pillows and curtains ... but not clothing.

    Though a full outfit seems daunting. Thinking maybe I could try a sundress for the summer ...
