I was desparate to get sewing again but I was still feeling rather frazzled so I knew it would have to be something nice and simple. Issue 6 of the Burda style mag had this cute teen summer vest top:
I dug out a scrap of jersey big enough for the top and got going. It was nice and simple - I foolishly decided to twin needle the hem at the armholes and neckline not thinking that twin needles don't do corners! So close up the top stitching is not the best, but it is still a cute little top that I think will get lot's of wear over the summer!!
She decided that gymnastics would be the best way to show the top off!!
A near perfect cartwheel!
I managed to get her to stay still enough for some poses!
I wanted to get these photos taken before the light faded so the shoulder straps aren't quite attached properly but you get the general idea!
I think it must be every sewist mummy's dream to have their little person exclaim 'wow - awesome mummy' upon receiving a garment made for them - it certainly made my day!
Thanks for popping by!
