I haven't sewn clothing for myself in a long while. When I first learned to sew that was all I made. I miss sewing for myself. I also miss having clothes to wear... I am still carrying an extra 20 lbs from my last pregnancy (not to mention the enormous boobs that go along with breast feeding!) so not many of my regular clothes fit. I am sure the weight would come of faster if I exercised with any sort of regularity but in my limited "me time" sewing usually wins out. Maybe someday I will be better at balancing all the things I want to do.
I made this top from the Most Flattering Shirt Dress tutorial at Prudent Baby. I obviously made it a shirt length rather than a dress. It was a quick top to make and I think I will probably make at least one more and probably a dress once I am no longer nursing Gemma. I got the fabric from Wal-mart- $3.47/yard. I really liked the blue and white medallion type print and the price can't be beat! It is soft and light- a necessity in the brutal summer heat!
