A top for me....for a change...

November 23, 2014


Today I am taking part in an Aussie hosted series called 'Constant Change'.  It is a series hosted  by two of my lovely blogging friends - Jenya from While she was sleeping and Renee from Nearest the pin


When I first got the invitation from Jenya and Renee, I planned on starting and finishing Emily's 'big girl' quilt as she will soon be graduating from her cot into a big bed. But I did not have enough time, and instead  I decided to make something for myself for 'a change'.  


I am very used to being behind the camera but not so comfortable in front!  Juliette took some of these photos, but I needed Stefan to step in for a couple! One thing about my wardrobe that has not changed in many years and that is that I live in jeans and tops/shirts and usually a pair of ballet flats. My wardrobe is also full of quite an array of cardigans - I have had a soft spot for them since I was a teenager.  


I made this pattern up - traced from a top I already own.  It is like a smart T- shirt.  There is a curved hemline which dips down further at the back.  the back has a small yoke and the neckline is faced. The fabric is a lovely linen blend from Miss Matatabi. This particular print is not longer available, but you can see another colourway here. I have worn this shirt two days in a row and it feels really nice to wear something I have made.  


Thank you Jenya and Renee for the inspiration and for having me!!

  1. The top is lovely, and it suits you well. It looks comfortable, and a little more... hm... what's the word... special than a regular tee-shirt. Love the fabric! It is nice to see you in front of the camera for a change ;) Thank you for participating in the series :)

  3. Very beautiful top. I don't sew a lot for myself either, but sometimes it's really good to do so. At least I can wear those things for a much longer time than my kids do...
