Finally finished one Simplicity 2601 top. (There is another one in progress in a different view.) I had some leftover Amy Butler Daisy Chain from this dress. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, but I was very frustrated while making this top. All of the frustration was because I was trying to rush through the bias binding. I should've ironed and taken it slowly... it would've helped if I used single fold bias tape instead of double, too. Also, I'm not very good at loop turning. Anyone have any suggestions?
I used covered buttons, and I love how they turned out. Overall, it was a great pattern and top and I definitely do recommend it. I do need a little break from it for my second top since I need to get over my personal frustration with the top.
Oooo... another thing is that I joined stash busting hosted by Zoe. I did get some fabric as a Valentine's present, but that doesn't count, right? :) I am determined to go through more of my stash and not buy any more fabric. I haven't decided what my limits would be yet... should it be by time or projects? I think projects make more sense since I could go long periods of time without finishing projects. How about finishing at least four projects with stash fabric before buying any new ones? :)
