Ruched Top Again

After I made this Megan Neilsen Ruched top for Erin, it was quickly one of her favorites.
Using some fabric recently purchased from Needle Nook Fabrics, I made this version

I saw it on her today with black pants and it looked very cute on her.
Then I pulled out a sweater knit, purchased from Gorgeous Fabrics last year.  I bought it to make myself a cardigan but the sweater knit really was just a stamped onto some thin sweater knit.   Not something I wanted for a cardigan when the wrong side might show but perfect for this top.

I am going to try some of these with some sleeve variations and neckline variations (mainly a v-neck)

  1. I wish I could have looked this stylish while I was pregnant - your daughter is very lucky - you are obviously a very proud grandma to be . I can imagine you will be sewing some very cute baby clothes too.

  10. That first top fabric is SO lovely! When you buy from Ann, do you request samples of the fabric or do you just let Ann describe and go for it?

    1. Anne has a blog and puts pictures up from time to time of her fabric. I then call or email with what I want. Say something like - in the ITY picture I will take the second from the left and describe it a bit.
