SewingPorftolios.com coloborated with Michael Miller Fabrics for a great campaign. As an Ambassador, I received MM fabric to create and showcase as I wish. When I saw the prints I thought "little girl" (like everyone else) but, I don't have any tiny ladies in my life right now! So, it took a while to figure out what to make, as I am an apparel sewer and the pieces were a bit smaller than what I'm used to. Since I was sent a total of three yards (1yd per print), I needed to have a "make it work for me" moment.  Not only were these fabrics beautiful and fun, they quality is unmatched! The cotton is super soft and the colors are soooo vibrant! The line is appropriately called "How Does Your Garden Grow".

FYI - I had two other Michael Miller Fabrics in my stash, one is already a summer dress and the other is so pretty I don't want to cut into it!  ROFL!! I just like to unfold it on my cutting table pet and drool on it. Then I put it back! (HA!)

Here is this Garden Growing in all my Glory! This top, and it sewed like buddah!!




Some detail pics for your viewing enjoyment!! The top is Butterick 6416
 

 

Let me know what you think and this is Michael Miller Fabrics folks - There's a ton to pick from and I suggest you hurry up! I'm the Fabric Whisperer and I'll clean them out before you get there!!! All this cottony goodness!

  3. Cute top, great job making it “grown up”. Also, thanks for the fabric info, I always though MM was more “quilting” cotton so I never look at it.
