Bustier Hibernation and a Quick Project
Here it is, unfinished. I know I said it would be done at the end of March, but I just can't take any more bustier sewing. Therefor this project is going in to hibernation. I want to get things for Me Made May 2012 squared away before I wrestle this project into submission.
My frustration lies in the fact that my lining and garment aren't lining up and the hook and eye tape is pulling funny. I need a break and so I'm taking one.
On Sunday I worked on the bustier for about an hour and it felt like I was banging my head against a brick wall. I put the bustier away and I pulled out this lovely purple cotton blend jersey that I purchased a while back. Then I looked up this awesome dolman sleeve top tutorial from Merricks Art. In about an hour I had completed a great top. I love an instant gratification project.
It's super comfy and I can add it to my me made tops. Yes three tops! I am going to make at least one if not two more of these as they will be great to wear to work.
I am looking to maybe stencil something fun on this top. I found this great freezer paper stencil tutorial on Freshly Picked. I was thinking an easy old heart or maybe something more me, maybe a unicorn? I don't know the possibilities are endless.
