2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

April 11, 2012

EBB OR FLOW - THAT IS THE QUESTION....

...nothing new to show today - I'm right in the middle of prepping my pattern for top number 6 - which is by the way yelling that a muslin needs to be made primarily because I think it's going to be made from the white handkerchief linen that it took me so long to find... (have you ever read such a long sentence?)

This is what I'm working on...
It's call Ebb and Flow by Louise Cutting - Cutting Line Designs

 
Flow has the unique collar and Ebb is collarless - I'll be working on Flow.   I bought this pattern at the 2011 Sewing Expo.  I was able to make it out this year without purchasing an independent pattern.  I'm shooting for something easy, breezy and of course cute that I'll love to wear almost any place I go.  Is that a lot of demand to put on a top or what?  

I feel the need to make a muslin because venturing out from the Big 4 is not usually my norm and sizing can be such a tricky thing sometimes.

*************
I wanted to also mention that there are 

more STARTING AT THE TOP CHALLENGE DAYS left.  If you are a challenge participant who hasn't submitted a finished project as of yet, there's still time...there are lots of tops that don't take very long to whip up....

  1. Oh,NOooo! I've done it again. Immediately after signing up for the challenge, I was commissioned to do a job. Everything was set to go. I will have show and tell but will def. try to sew a few tops before the challenge ends. So Sorry.

  2. BTW, I love that Ebb or Flow top. So city chic looking. Would be perfect in lightweight linen, too. Can't wait to see it!!!!

  3. I'm loving all the tops everyone is making for this challenge!

    By the way, I've nominated you for a blog award. You can "pick it up" over at my blog. No worries/pressure if awards are not your thing. I'm not actually sure you fit the criteria of the award (200 readers or less?) but I wanted to acknowledge your blog anyway!
