Vogue 9204 with Sleeve Modification...

...
ME:  I'm having the hardest time getting back into my sewing mood. I just can't make up my mind what to make.

MY MOTHER:  Why don't you just make a top.


That was a wonderful suggestion, thanks Mom!  So enter Vogue 9204. A pattern I fell in love with at first sight when it was first released.
This pattern coupled with a gorgeously drappy fabric (I actually don't know the fabric type, or fiber content) that was gifted to me by my sew friend Brenda, Ms._bystyle from Alabama. I just know that it's pretty, and fit my need for a pop of much needed color for my new Fall wardrobe.


My modified bell sleeve

Finally a finished product.  I really think I'm going to enjoy wearing this.  Now on to the next pattern...

  11. That color is beautiful! A nice draped top is exactly the thing for fall, and your mother was right: a pretty top is easy to make and get you started sewing again.

  12. Very pretty blouse, and red also satisfies the need for a little color. It good to be back to sewing, right? Believe it or not, I'm struggling too. So today I decided to stop by a few of my favorite sewing blogs to help motivate me. Nice jump start, Ms. Faye.

  13. This is so beautiful, Faye. I've been in the same boat - zero sewing mojo. I just finished making a top a day ago and it has really brought my mojo back. I love your pattern and the fabric goes so well with it.
