Here’s a question, if you make something out of leftover fabric, is that said something now free? I think so. Sara, over at Goodbye Valentino posted this just this week. Before I read it, I was planning to make a top out of my leftover fabric from McCall 6282. After I read it, I was spurred on to get it done before the said fabric got buried in the
rag bag Good Intentions Box. I had enough fabric to make my third Style Arc Creative Cate Top
This top sews up so nice and fast. The only change I made was to add 5/8″ to the side seams to make an inch seam allowance, and then I moved the stitching line to 5/8″ instead of 3/8″. Last time I made this top I used a 1/4″ seam allowance and that worked fine too.
I cut the back neck binding out of part of the border. I didn’t have enough of the border to use at the hem line, but I do have enough left that hopefully will make an appearance in a color block garment soon.
The green in the print matches this cardigan I bought (last year).
This is Fergie. She is my tractor. I love her. For my birthday I asked for implements…no really I did, and I got them.
I don’t know if Kate shares my affection for Fergie.
I am really enjoying thinking, talking, and dreaming about sewing again. So glad I took the RTW Faster Challenge. Anyone else want to join us?
