Jessica + Voile + Summertime Top = Cute



It’s been fun getting back into the groove of sewing. There were a few things I brought with me when we moved so I could have projects to do while waiting for my household stuff. One of the items was the Summer Time top pattern from Favorite Things. Another was AMH voile diamond mine in ink. I was hoping Jessica would like the combination and she did.

Of course, we had to put our own twist on things. She’s not a big fan of ties. I knew this, so I wasn’t surprised. We decided on buttons. I added a placket down the front on both sides because it was too small across the front. This is not her fault. The girl is tiny. I should have checked to make sure the pattern fit. I just started cutting to her normal size without compensating for some new attributes that she has acquired. I made the cap sleeves a bit shorter too.

I love the way it turned out. Voile is the perfect fabric for a top like this.

That looks great! I really like the buttons instead of the tie! I made the same top out of the brown voile we got in right before you left. I need to photograph it it! :)

If only I could sew like that! Jessica looks fab in the top and it's so cool that you can just go and alter so easily! Blah!

As for Jessica needing a new face... I looked at her face in the photo and that is the face I remember looking across from me at the kitchen table asking " But why miss. Joan? Why?"
LOL
