Butterick 6175 - Boxy top in Cotton Print

Bocy top for Spring 2015 using Butterick 6175 and a fun bird poplin print
Sometimes I am just ready for something different, especially with the change of the season.  One thing I have noticed  you get older, is to stay trendy but keep it age-appropriate.  It is a delicate line to walk, I don't want to dress like a 20-something but I don't want to dress too old. I thought I would try the trend of the boxy top, notice I said boxy not crop!

Kwik Sew 2895 - Confetti Tweed


I have been eyeing this gorgeous Mood Fabrics' Confetti Cotton-Blend Tweed for about three months and in March I just knew I really needed it for spring.  My accumulation of fabric is going better than my making of garments lately but that is okay, I need some for a rainy day, right?  After this fabric arrived at my doorstep, I had time to touch, feel and admire it.  With such admiration, I needed to find a pattern.  I used to always have the patterns first and then had trouble finding the right fabric.  It is much easier to find the pattern after the fabric, at least for me.  I say that but with this instance, I changed my mind at least twice.

Burda 6838



All I can say about this one is, YUK, I don't like it at all. It was one of those projects I had high hopes for but didn't meet the expectations.  Plus it was one of those projects that had one mishap after another.  The fabric is from Mood and while it is a wonderful stripe and I do like a good stripe, it is quite thin.
