top week

When I saw Made by Rae was having this contest, I got really excited to try to make something for myself . I had been eying up a shirt I saw at Anthropologie, so why not try to make it. It should be like making clothes for the kids just a little more material right?

It wasn't to bad I bought a yard of jersey fabric and went to town. I wasted a lot of material because I was afraid I would cut it to small. I think I stitched the side seams about 3 or 4 times before it was a fit I liked. I just kept going back to the sewing machine and making it smaller a little at a time. I liked the frayed look so I went with it and had it frayed at the top and bottom of the ruffles.

make it wear it

Amy- THanks for your comment!! You should totally make one- they aren't too time consuming :) Love your blog!!

Getting the right fit can be so hard! Love the color!

I have a weekly Thursday blog party especially for people to share things they've made to be worn. Stop by if you'd like!

I'm hoping you read this...I was wondering about your leapster bag...did you use a tutorial or pattern for that? I would like to make one, but haven't found a bag that I like. I hope you see this and can help me. if so will you email me? (i tried emailing, but no response, hoping that was an old account though! lol)
