A journal of my sewing and knitting adventures in which I try to make something a "little different" by using unusual patterns and materials.

My First Designer Top
Nope, I didn't make this wonderful designer top (from Helia's in Old Town, Alexandria, VA). It was a gift from a special friend. I had seen it and wanted to knock-off the pattern but it was one of those that would be almost impossible to copy just by looking at it in the store (and places like that seem to get suspicious when I turn it inside out to see how it's put together). I was complaining about this fact and she totally surprised me with this gift. It's definitely a memory of a special time and I will LOVE wearing it this summer. I did make the pants to go with it. They are Marcy Tilton's Vogue 8712 which are my new favorite to make for summer.
I lost a little of my sewing MO-JO after finally completing the "knock-Off" dress for the PR contest but am getting it back now. I want to make up some of the latest Vogue patterns in the next few weeks before the new ones come out in July. Happy sewing!
