Sneek Peak

 I have been sewing!

I am working on the Willow Wrap top from Love Notions.

Just a glimpse of this sewing project.

Here are the three I purchased

I have fabric washed and ready for 9273. I plan to make the view on the bottom left side. I have seen a blogger wearing a top like this and I fell in love with the sleeves.

Another purchase I made was the cotton fabric. It is mid to heavy weight cotton. I plan to make a pair of shorts with this.

That's it for now. Hopefully will complete the Willow Wrap this afternoon.

  2. Looking forward to seeing your Willow top. I made the dress and really like the dress pattern. Happy sewing!

  3. Thanks Bonnie! I hope you are doing well!

  4. Really like those last two tops pictured! I love the split hem on 9275 and the sleeves on 9273!

  5. I was drawn to 9273 because of the sleeves! I have the perfect fabric (I think) for the 9275. I too was drawn to this one because of the split hem.


Next Project, New Fabric and UFO complete
