I Take Back Everything I Said – Style Arc May Top

Leave a comment



Okay. Wow. I got the May top sewn together at the side seams and, of course, the sleeves on, and I tried it on! Wow again! It fits beautifully and it is SUPER CUTE.  I will have pictures this afternoon so you can all drool over this top!

The rest of the sewing was pretty easy – just sewing in sleeves and then doing the side seams. I did the side seams on my serger (!) and it was SO easy to use. I am in love with this top now and I plan to make many, many more – difficult under bust seam or not!

I came from a family who made things. My father was a carpenter with a passion for making furniture. My mother sewed, crocheted, cooked and made a home on a shoestring. My grandmothers both quilted. As a teenager, I found batik through a wonderful art teacher who allowed me the freedom to batik yards of fabric. I then cut them up into a pattern and wore the item I made. I was ecstatic. I painted in my teens and twenties and my parents gracefully supplied me with oil paints and turpentine. When I needed an easel, my father took me to the shop where he worked and made me one. When he found unused and unwanted canvas, he brought it home and stretched it for me with wood from his shop at home. I was indulged at every step of the way. I wasn't ever told that I could not do something or that I should not do something. I was given freedom to chose my path in life. A blessed life I have lived, for sure.
