Sew-ful Sunday

I was totally hit by the sewing bug this week. This morning I finished this top - it's Simplicity 3835 in a nice satiny polka dot material and I love it! I'm wearing it to church today:) I also made a skirt that I plan on wearing to work tomorrow. I have three more shirts cut out - all in this same pattern. It's one of my absolute favorites and goes together so quickly. I omitted the elastic in the sleeve in this one.

Simplicity 3835 - Raesha

The other three that are almost done are all in cotton - two in vintage sheets and one in a fun red print. I think they will be perfect for our Disneyworld trip - nicer than a t-shirt but still breezy and cool. Pictures to come shortly:) Anyone else have a perfect go-to summer top that's quick and easy???

You look wonderful! That top is really nice. I saw the same one on someone else's blog this morning...seems it's a popular pattern.

WOW!! A great looking top, kindda easy-weasy to make -- AND -- in a fabric that is a "personal choice" fabric!!! (I'm not real sure who's selecting these lovely(NOT)blouses in the stores -- major ICK factor!)
Anyway, your's is LOVELY -- and again -- she makes her outfit for Church "just before" she walks out the door!!
Vat a voman!!!!
hugs,
Bonnie
