Summer's here, so it's time to sew. After seeing so many cute versions of this Built by Wendy top (Simplicity 3964), I had to make one. So, I made one for Rayna. I love this pattern, especially those little sleeves and the inset. The inset was a little difficult for me to sew in, but I managed. If anyone else has made this top and has advice on the inset I would love to hear it. I did step up my sewing a little by actually taking the time to hand baste. In doing so, I realized that my hand-sewing skills could use improvement. Here's the hanger shot, which shows the fabrics better:
I just got a couple more BBW patterns (3835 and 3962) and I am back to my summer time activity of trolling sewing blogs for inspiration. It's time to put my wonderfully organized fabric stash to work.
