sewing for me: another most flattering shirt

I made another "Most Flattering Top". I love green. It's such a cheerful color. I realized recently that I have a lack of green in my life; in my wardrobe, in my home. So this is my first effort to add a little green.


I did nine rows of shirring on the last top. This time I only did one row in front...



and three rows in the back.


It gives the top a little more relaxed, flow-y feel. This top would look great with a trendy belt-- I need to get one of those!

I think I am going to make one more in a Fall-ish print and add sleeves. Have you made a "Most Flattering Top (or dress)? You can find the tutorial here.

VERY Cute. That would be nice as a dress too! I'm going to have to make myself onf of these.

Erin, do you make dolls for your girls? I have been playing around with making rag dolls to give as Christmas presents. I have a basic design for girl dolls, but i'm looking for ideas for boy dolls. (we have sons).

Here's the tutorial for a primative rag doll and dress. http://householdhowto.blogspot.com/
