Though it doesn't feel much like it around here (W. Massachusetts), it's Spring Top time! I made 2 new shirts for myself last week, kind of itching for it to be warm.
Total side not, you can choose to ignore if you want....one of my New Year's resolutions, even though I don't do New Year's resolutions, is to not crop my face out of all my pictures. It's silly, but I always crop my face out. Why? There a million reasons probably going back to my childhood (just kidding), but it's time to just grow up and put it out there. Ok, back to things that really matter, spring tops!
This shirt was a nod to one of last year's shirts with the shirring. This time I decided to try it out at the sleeve end rather than at the shoulder. I like it!
This next top I made with this this fun bird fabric. I got both fabrics from Girl Charlee.
For this top, I did a cuff on the end. I wish I had made the sleeves either longer or shorter. It's not really a 3/4 length and ends up feeling a bit awkward. I do still love it and have already worn it a few times.
You can't really tell from the pictures, but both shirts also have a bit of a scoop neck in the back too. I traced the pattern from a shirt I own that I've had for many many years. Had to add some length to it. Is it just me or do shirts get shorter and shorter over time? I know I'm not getting longer....
Will definitely be making more Spring Tops, so check back soon.
