2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

BLOGLIKECRAZY 2016 DAY 16: #Faye's Sewing Life...

...beneath a deluge of paper patterns (mostly from the Big 4 companies) is where you'll find my sewing life.  Neat little envelopes that represent all kinds of "sewing possibilities" can be found in nearly every room in my house.  I sometimes take a couple of them to bed with me  - you know, as light late night reading material.  My intent is to  compare and make decisions about which one I should make next.  I try to at least read through the instruction sheets, but that rarely happens because in a matter of minutes I'm fast asleep.  At it leads to some happy sewing dreams...

Vogue 1261
Vogue 1261 won out this time after debating over at least ten other slouchy top patterns.

There will be a new mustard knit top in my very near future...
