I was so excited to participate in Spring Top Week over at Made by Rae, and my incredibly reliable internet kicked the bucket this afternoon. Grrr!! But I will show you my tops anyway!Here is mine...
It was a make-it-up-as-you-go project. I wrapped the fabric around me to see if the 45" wide would work, and it seemed to be fine. I used my new serger (yay!) to creat a rolled hem at the top and bottom, and sewed rows and rows with my elastic thread. I created straps, placed them accordingly, stitched them on, and VOILA! I did end up going back and turning under the top and bottom about 1/8" and finishing off the hem. I really love how it turned out -- It's nice for hiding a few of those post-pregnancy pounds..... It doesn't make me look pregnant, does it?
I couldn't resist making one for JellyBean!
Love it, love it! Did I mention that elastic thread is my new favorite obsession?
