Two years in the making for such a simple top... I think I began this top in October of 2008. I drafted the review on PR back in March of 2009 leaving only the hemming undone. Well, I finally finished it a couple of nights ago... phew!
Pattern: Butterick 5100 with view A length and view D cowl (I'm not surprised it's out of print!)
Fabric: Ivory sweater knit from fabric.com back in 2008 for a total of $6.37
Total Cost: $7.36 ($0.99 pattern + $6.37 fabric)
I don't know why this was just hung in my closet for so long when all I had to do was finish the sleeve hem and the bottom hem. This pattern is SUPER easy... but hemming is my least favorite part of sewing. I don't remember what the instructions were but I don't like the way I finished sleeves. The way that they are cut also makes it hang off my shoulders funny, but don't mind too much. Doesn't it looks like I have wings?
There's an Anthropologie across from work, and I stopped by the other day and bought the belt in the picture along with a headband.
These are the earrings that I wore... they're from the streets of SOHO when I was in New York. They're handmade and I love them!
Here's a sneak peak at something else I'm working on. Our wedding anniversary is this Friday, and we're celebrating on Monday so that gives me an extra few days to finish it. :D
