This particular project originated in Georgia. My family and I went to Georgia and FL in the spring. My sister-in-law, who is new to the sewing game, took me to the local fabric store in Valdosta, GA. (A small but nice town not far from the FL state line.)
I fell for this Zebra and flower (? LOL!) Lycra knit print. I had to have some cause she was buying stuff too! Anyway I started it at her home and didn't finish. So we packed up and drove back to IL and this project became a ufo. It sat on my sewing table collecting dust until I was about to toss it out. You know, it was "in the way". With my hand in the air and the project balled up, I thought - wait I should just finish it and I did. WoW! This top came out great! Erica B. says - quick and simple projects. (Her blog is the bomb!) She was right. This top was fast and easy and it's great looking. I wore it to the mall while back to school shopping with my son and 3 folks asked where I purchased it. I also got a "that's a cute top" from a passer by. This is why I sew!!! OK, and for the rush of a custom garment! LOL!!!
Here are some photos of the front and back on my dummy lady! HOW CUTE IS THIS!!!!!!!!!
I luv this top so much, I will make another! Same style but I will in a solid color and make some pants to match. (OK, I got to thinking about all that other stuff I have to make.) I'll do it! I will!!
