If you don't follow Project Sewn and you like to sew garments, you really should check it out. It is such a great source of inspiration and for someone like me, who needs small goals each week, its great to follow along. It makes me push to get projects that have been in my head forever finally DONE! Which is so gratifying. So on to the makes...the theme this week is "Going Global."
The top is, once again, my mash-up of the Grainline Scout and Megan Nielsen Crescent Top. You can see my first one here. I am loving this franken-pattern, I tell you it is sooo comfy and you can wear it tucked in, out, belted. I am including pictures of it each way so you can get an idea.
I'm always nosy like that about patterns, wondering how it would look styled differently, so I guess I'm assuming some of you are nosy like that too! The fabric is from Hancock's and is a rayon challis. The print reminds me of all the wildlife my husband saw while in Kenya. He even fed a giraffe, see those warthogs in the back ground, always makes me think of Pumbaa.
The skirt is the Cascade skirt also from Megan Nielsen. I chopped a good bit off of the back since it was a bit much for my frame. The fabric was thrifted, I have no idea what it is, it breathes and is very drapey resulting in a comfy skirt for summer and a nice alternative to shorts. I am so glad to have finally used some of my fabric from Kenya, after all its been in my stash for FOUR years...ack! So I wonder do sew-alongs like Project Sewn give you that final push you need?
