berry fine

I have a bit of a thing for the strawberry motif. Okay, that’s a bit of an understatement. Anyway, I had a couple of small pieces of this strawberry fabric in my stash. The pieces were really too small to do much with, but then I was inspired by very purple person, who made some quick and simple tops out of small pieces of fabric (see here). Genius, right?
So, I cobbled together the pieces and kind of winged it and came up with this top. It’s pretty obvious I just dug stuff out of my stash. I used the narrow double-fold bias tape for the neck and armholes, and I used some readymade piping on the bodice. The top is a bit cutesy for a middle-aged woman like me, but I don’t care. Just wait until I’m 80. I will dress even crazier.

    ohh! those mad pattern making skillz you’ve acquired are SO apparent! Nice work! There should be a noun for us middle age women of the crazy dressing, don’t you think?

    Very cute. I really need to look into making more of my own clothing. While I love knitting it up, it is definitely a very long term solution to a small wardrobe.

    Well, you look splendid. More crazy: I am wearing my daughters’ tie-dyed jeans right now and they won’t even look at me…
