1. I’m always looking for ways to use bits of my favorite leftovers. This is wonderful, and not overkill, which I think happens sometimes. I’ve thought of trimming out just the overlap of some favorite wrap tops to see how that might look.

    Good luck to you with your entry. I’d vote for it for sure!

  2. Well done! Such care and persistence really paid off for a beautiful result! I bet there’ll be many more garments in your sewing future!

  3. What- no photo of you modeling the finished garment? Rest assured from a seasoned clothes sewer- I always use pins! I am most impressed with the evenness of your gathering- that’s not easy! Good luck in the competition!

  4. Beautiful work ~ wow, you’re a quilter and a dressmaker. As a teenager, my Mother tried for years to teach me to make my own clothing, it just never clicked. I would much prefer to quilt!
    Good luck in the challenge.

  5. SO GREAT! You are meant to make clothing it appears. I just want to see your bad self in the lovely thing. Quite the artist you are as well my friend. I am so impressed with your yoke patchwork. Unique, creative, masterfully made, beautiful and practical-all the good stuff. BRAVO!


  6. I just voted for your adorable top in Sara’s Dress Up Party! I am a quilter and do not sew clothes. I just love this. Possibly, I will try, down the road, to incorporate patchwork into a top, like you have. I think it would be the best of both worlds – quilting and sewing your own clothes. Awesome!

  7. This is one of my favorite kinds of garments! I’m not a size 2 either, I stopped making my own clothes years ago; but this looks like fun and it will get lots of wear. Many thanks for the tutorial and I’m off to make a mess.
