It feels so good to be back in my blog with a new post, it's been too long....
This top was made from a really easy and great pattern from Frog Legs and Ponytails and is called the Amelia Shirt.
I had some trouble at my last sewing class with some armhole bias binding on a different top I'm making so I was scared to try again but it went on perfectly. I decided to use some of M's hair clips to keep the binding in place and it worked a treat, so much easier than trying to sew right up to the pins which is why I think I had problems last time.
Unfortunately this top isn't for me (sob, sob) as I love the AB fabric which I ordered in especially for my friend, whose birthday was yesterday. I love the style of this top and ordered enough AB fabric (different pattern/colours) to make myself one too. I had trouble deciding which fabric to use for my friend and ended up choosing this combo because I think it's more "her" than the other fabric set. FWIW I love both lots that I ordered and would've been happy with a top in either!
