This is the Oliver and S Badminton Top. I originally intended this to be a birthday dress for my Bitty Girl but I only had the smallest portion of this kitty fabric left in my stash and since Bitty Girl really loves cats it had to be made into this top.
If you've been thinking about an Oliver and S pattern I would highly recommend them. I purchased this one from a locally owned quilting fabric store called The Stitchery. As a person who sews garments I try to support this shop as much as I can- I'm sure its really hard work to keep a quilting shop going and I love the assortment of adorable prints they have at ours. All of that said I really wish the quilting fabric industry would put out more apparel friendly fabrics. It probably isn't as profitable for them to do so but some of those quilting cotton prints are so cute and I'd love to see them in some other fabrics.
I've set myself a loose goal this year of trying to aggressively use up a lot of the quilting cottons I've accumulated. I bought almost exclusively quilting cottons when I first started sewing and they are languishing in my stash and cluttering my mind- so this may just be the year of using them up! So you will probably see quite a few posts about that here in the next 6 months or so! How about you, are you overwrought with quilting cottons? Are you seeking projects to gobble them up like I am?
