Howdy ya'll, I trust you are well?
Sorry for being away for so long! I have missed this little blog. But let's not get boring with real life details. Here is a simple top to get back into the blogging spirit!
Pattern: Named Inari Crop Tee
Fabric: A floral scuba knit with a mesh overlay (SO cool!). From work.
Time: This bad boy only took about 1.5 hrs from cutting to trying on...win
When Named brought out their new 'Ticket' collection I was possessed and accidentally went over to Stitch 56 and ordered up a few. Amongst my stash are the peg trousers, the Asaka kimono, the tulip dress and the lourdes jacket... yup...that was a two minute noodle week. Still coveting the pencil skirt and the bikini... but it is heading into winter over here so that might have to wait!
This pattern comes with two options, a crop tee and a longer tee dress. The crop tee is so tiny that I managed to scrape by with a 70cm remnant of this fun fabric.
It is hard to show the texture of this one in photographs...when will they invent feelovision?
In my excitement to wear this little tee I chucked it on over a me made dress (an old but a goody), sorry about the lumpy space princess look (adventure time rules).
I managed to score the day off today so thought I would tidy up the sewing room and finish up a couple of odd projects such as boring curtains and a couple of bits to display in the shop.
I am a sucker for cotton and steel's awesome fabric and my purse shakes with fear every time the boss orders some in. Stop it Joy!!!
After finishing up the odd bits there was still plenty of time to bust out something else. Enter the Inari.
Anyways, not much more to say about this little crop tee. It was a quick make and the pattern is lovely, as I'm finding all the Named patterns are. Next up will be that kimono... I'm imagining a silk version to swan around the house in, yesssssss!
A couple of detail shots to feast your eyes upon.
Over and out.
I'm back baby!
