2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

2017 TOPS THAT POP SEW-A-LONG - ONE AMAZING RIDE!!!

...yes, the 2017 Top That Pop Sew-a-long has been ONE AMAZING RIDE!!!  At the beginning I  only hoped that participation would be good. After seeing the response, participation and support it has been more than I could have ever dreamed.  My hat is off to each and ever one who made and submitted top photos; and those who wanted to participate but couldn't.  We know that circumstances sometimes keep us from doing as planned.
PLEASE NOTE:  I WILL KEEP POSTING ANY TOP SUBMITTED BY EMAIL ATTACHMENT FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS WEEK
THIS HAS BEEN A WIN, WIN SITUATION for us all.  We can all pull out a brand new top, pair it with an existing skirt or pant and  a new outfit has been added to our collections - its magical!

I'm hoping to make this an annual event and would be happy if each and everyone would plan on joining me for the 2018 Tops That Pop Sew-a-long.  But in the meantime this years event is not quite over

  1. The TOPS sew a long was marvelous. Faye thank you very much for hosting the sew-a long. I don't know what is it about your sew a longs that every time I participate I'm successful. You choose a garment (tops or skirts) and the participants have the freedom to choose or create patterns that work for them. Awesome!

    1. Thank you thank you thank you! I try my best to make the sewalongs as user friendly as possible AND to keep it fun! The main focus is to help people wake-up or jump start sluggish sewing motivation.

  2. I agree with Mariela Alethia! Your challenges/sew-alongs are truly inspirational and if your "sewing mojo has left the building", Faye's challenges are a great way of sending out the search dogs to bring it back! I loved it and am still making summer tops for the hubby and I. Thank you Faye for sending out those search dogs to bring my "sewjo" back home!

    1. If that is the case then the sewalong served it's purpose! You sew beautifully Myra! Now I need to pin point my Pinterest garment in order to get started on the Blab sewing challenge!

  4. Yay, Faye!! You've inspired 100 tops so far. I have a neckline problem with my top in progress. It may or may not get fixed by the end of the week. Regardless, I'll definitely be back for the 2018 top sew-a-long. It's been fun to participate and see what others are sewing.
