I hear many people saying they can’t believe summer is almost over. My youngest child graduated from college last spring, and I no longer follow a school calendar. Immersed in summer type activities for the next six weeks, I am in summer mode and that includes sewing!
Recently, Irene made several tops from this Kwik Sew pattern inspiring me to give it a try.Determined to challenge myself during the past year, I chose more complicated patterns to sew, but adding five more buttonholes to my repertoire immediately qualified the pattern!Though there’s not much to it, I really like several pattern details such as the wide straps and higher cut of the front providing comfortable coverage.
The fabric, Cherry Wallflower from Amy Butler’s Lotus collection from my stash almost reminds me of something I would have sewn for my daughters when they were little. Transcending children’s clothes and quilts, the versatile cotton fabric turned out to be a good choice for a casual summer top.
I’m enjoying my final week at Edisto Beach for the summer, but summer will continue in full force at home without the benefit of pleasant ocean breezes.
Lots of these little tops may be required for survival!
