I love this top. It is the right fabric (I LOVE KNITS SO MUCH!), 3 pattern pieces (ADD Friendly sewing), and overall a pretty versatile shape. I dig the sleeves the most. I sewed the purple leopard one first. Man I love this fabric, I’ve been hoarding saving it for almost two years know. Proof? I blogged
about it. lol In honor of this drag-tastic fabric, I watched To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. I watched this movie a ton as a child, which probably explains my present day obsession with Drag Queens. I. LOVE. THEM!
The fabric from the second one will probably seem familiar to you. I made a V1179 and recently blogged about it HERE. No changes other than French seaming the shoulders. But look how different they look! It’s so much shorter than the leopard! Way less stretchy too, which is actually good. Even with the staystiching, the neck on the leopard one has stretched out and falls down over one shoulder. Not a huge deal, unless it’s during preschool and you have a bright pink bra on. “Hey Ms. Andrea, what’s that pink thing?”

So yeah, I’ll be back tomorrow my February plans. What? February is almost over? Shhhhh, I’m not quite sure how that happened. Check back tomorrow for the deets. Spoiler alert, there will be leopard print. lol
