I've always wanted to make my own clothes, and my new years resolution for this year is to make a whole bunch of pretty tops to wear this summer, so this weekend I'm going to start just that!
In the past I have rushed through patterns because I've wanted to wear it straight away, and I get too impatient, therefore once the garment is finished, it looks a bit rubbish, and doesn't fit right!
So this weekend I'm going to take my time, and if I don't finish it, it doesn't matter because I won't be wearing it until the summer (maybe April with a cardigan ;)
I'm lucky enough to get on really well with the company director at my job, and I had her help me choose out the fabric for some fun tops. The best thing about working for a fabric company is getting to drool over the fabric :D
How cute is that trifle sundae fabric?! I was also really lucky to find we do two different colour red zips and each of them match either fabric perfectly!
I think I'm going to use the red/black polka dot fabric for pattern A (top left) and the trifle sundae fabric for either pattern E (top right) or pattern B (bottom right)
Has anyone sewn this pattern before? Does anyone have any tips? Would you go by the size on the back or would you take measurements? I don't think on this I am too worried about the fit because as I said it is for the summer and I'm not one for tight fitting tops!
