So this is where it all began!!!! This lovely lovely rose, I just love it 🙂
the colour is so spring summer, vintage like , it want’s to be touched but you dare not it’ll fall apart!!!
I seen on a blog i was following that Rae
was having a top challenge and jumped at the chance…. I say jumped it took for ever to find the fabric…
but when I did I moved all the clutter in my sewing room to the side see last post!
! And got to work on my pattern……
I knew straight away what had to be done!!!!! :)))))
So pattern drawn now the scary bit have faith in myself and cut the bloody fabric!!!!
Pin it and sew……. That done I have to say I wore the top today with may a compliment was given and 2 lady’s I know asked me to make them one too!!!!! :))))
The brooch is made from my stash of ribbon and lace as well as a broken and much loved chain….. the button is from my granny matties collection….
The keyhole idea came from the rose…. being round!!!! And I really wanted to do kimono style sleeves as that’s what the rose made me think about …..
All in all I am very proud of my first ever top design I believe it turn out better than i thought it would ……
