As I said, TOPS ARE POPPING...
Shawnice Reene's New Look 6108 Cowl Necked top

Creeshun's Simplicity Simply Sew  A8585 Cold Shoulder top

Michele P's Burberry inspired Pamela's Patterns T-shirt
Eli Cat's Self Drafted Zip Shoulder top
Vanessa Thomas' Rosy Pena Laura Top
And lastly from me, Burda 6456
I chose this pattern first because I've fallen in love with flounces of all kinds this year, and secondly because I thought it would be easy to make - wrong!  That flounced V-neckline gave me a FIT.  A dear friend came to my rescue via Facebook messenger video (I think  on this one to help me figure it out so it all worked out well in the end.  So glad that I got the placement of those egg shaped pink circles in the right place.  This was one of my #2018MAKE9 patterns too
Don't forget about the random drawings sponsored by these great companies that will be held at the end of the sewalong.

  1. I decided last night to join. I felt like I had lost my ‘sewjo’ after several weeks of not being able to sew and a cute new top seemed just the ticket. Hop3 it’s not too late!

    Thanks for sponsoring this. I love reading your blog!
