More selfish sewing! Here is Megan Nielsen's Briar Top, which is basically a simple t-shirt, but with an interesting hemline.
After my sizing issues with the Kelly Skirt, I was prepared for this to run a bit small. So I cut out a Large. And it was way too big! I can't win. Luckily, this one is very easy to take in and shorten. Even the shoulders and sleeves are easy to adjust, because the shape is so simple.
I did the regular neck binding and it lays just right.
I found this awesome paisley knit at Britex Fabrics on my last visit. It is probably a cotton/rayon mix? Substantial, but still drapey. I love it. I have enough left for a little skirt or tank ....
Joe brought me a flower! A yellow nasturtium flower. Nasturtium is a weed in our garden, actually. Joe can pick as many flowers as he wants - maybe he can slow it down from self-seeding? Plus, it's sweet.
It smells like pepper, Joe! (I swear I was sniffing the flower, not blowing on it, not that you would ever guess that!)
Oh hi, Maggie!!!!! She was a little grumpy and wanted to be picked up.
In case you were wondering, taking photographs from below minimizes a large bust, but maximizes extra chins ... again, I can't win!
This is obviously meant to be paired with skinny jeans, but I think it might look pretty good tucked into a skirt with a cardigan ... or over a narrow pencil skirt? I'll find out and report back.
