Hi Everyone!

I've tried to get some creative time in this week. Other things like work and meetings and dinners are keeping me busy.
I did manage to finish this top.
I used Vogue pattern 2925. I read the reviews for this pattern on Pattern Review and thought it'd be a nice top to try. I also like the jacket, skirt and pants in the pattern. I'm really hoping to sew more soon. Let's see. I cut a size 18 and didn't have to make any alterations to the pattern. (Wow!) I just turned under the neckline, armholes and hem and stitched with a twin needle. That worked great with this fabric. I bought the fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics last summer. It's a polyester/lycra blend. I really like how it drapes.

I had a great surprise this week. Sheila sent this award to me. Aawwww, Thank you! I was blown away. If you don't know her blog, you need to check it out. She's amazing! If she wants to sew, crochet or knit, ... it's done. She'll show the material or yarn she bought on her blog and the next thing you know, it's done! ... and it beautiful!
In the spirit of the award, I'd like to pass this on to Trailmix Designs, Sew Chic and My Hand Found. I love reading blogs and seeing everyone's creativity and fun!

Don't you just luv those quick projects and your tank came out nice. What are you going to pair it with.

Nice job -- looks like a good wardrobe basic! I love a nice faced waist instead of a waistband; guess I need to look for that pattern (and the stash grows a little bigger).

Thanks for your advice on dd's dress, I will use the same fashion fabric for the yoke and the printed fabric for a belt. Don't you just love Elann's esprit yarn, I can't wait to order more.
