3 new tops

Though I still have a feeling that I don't sew a lot at the moment, this weekend I completed 3 tops. First the BWOF blouse.

Especially with the belt it looks good over my jeans. I like the result, the busy print is not somehting I usually have, but it's fine (Kat, I don't know the aura of migraine, possible I wouldn't have chosen this print).

I didn't make the sleeves longer, like I used to do, and they are fine. I think I used to wear my sleeves too long, overreacting to rtw sleeves presumably, that are always too short on me.

This a great basic pattern, and I'll make more blouses of this one.

 

And yesterday afternoon I made two t-shirts of New Look 6735. I need a few basic tops in solid colors, the black one is the first. The other is a fabric I bought last year, and later regretted a bit. Because sewing this top is so easy (first time for me though), I made it to see how it would be. Not bad, but certainly not a favorite.

You have been very busy this weekend, great job on all the sewing.

I really like this belted. And those other two tops are fab! Check out this link, Sigrid: http://www.knownjohnson.com/?p=73 . If you click on the start button next to the car, you'll understand exactly what I mean. The 439 other responses indicate I have good company LOL. This is what a migraine aura looks like. It's the prelude to one awful headache. I think you'll understand why the print reminds me of a migrain aura after you check it out ;) .

The shirt and the tops are great. I have New Look 6735 lurking in my stash. I think I'll pull it out and try a long sleeve top.

Sigrid, I love your basic blouse. It looks so stylish with the belt! I am jealous that you had such a productive weekend! Nice job.

Love the blouse. The print is fabulous. Your tops are cute also, and wonderful wardrobe fillers.

I think that first top looks best with the belt. It's a really fun print. In the spring, I am always encouraged to try fun, bold prints, a sort of awakening from the grey skies of winter.

The blouse is beautiful...sometimes I try a print that I wouldn't normally choose and am pleasantly surprised! Nice tops for a weekend's work!

I love that blue print for the t-shirt! I don't think you should second guess it.

The blouse is gorgeous, another great blue and black print.

I love the tops and the fabric on the first on is great.

Great weekend! I love how the blouse fits you and I think that the sleeves are the perfect length. I love the scoop neck on those t's. I'll be copying that on my tnt pattern.

Don't sew a lot at the moment???? I wish I had your production level, then I would be able to by more fabric in three weeks :-)

I really like the shirt, so cheerful!

Birgitte said...

They're all great but I especially love the blouse and belt, makes your waist look itsy-bitsy :)) And the fabric is groovy!

The shirt looks fabulous, with or without the belt. The knit tops are good too - always useful.

Teddylyn said...

Nice tops! I like all three! The black t would look nice under the Burda shirt too...nice work!

Love your blouse! Very nice and the fabric is great. I also like the tees. One can never have too many plain tees. It looks like you enjoyed a nice weekend sewing.

Perfect blouse for spring transition. I really like that print, migraines and all.

Tany said...

You have been busy! Love the three tops, specially the blouse which I think looks extremely well on you! There's nothing like a princess seam shirt: timeless and elegant. The fabric really adds up to the final result too.

The blouse is great! The migraine aura thing is spot on. Having had hundreds, it looks very familiar. We know how the designer felt the day she designed this fabric....bunny
