My inspiration for today was this little gem:
Yep, that’s the cover picture for the pattern that I used. It reminds me of when my mom would try and speak in slang back in high school. Everything hurts for so many different reasons. Close to being right, but so terribly, terribly wrong. Oh McCall’s 6566, what hath thee stylists done to you?
Anyway, somehow I was able to look past this pattern’s cover charm and made myself a quick little top:
I picked up a couple of yards of dotted lace at a fabric sale. I imagine I’ll use it for the top half of a Macaron or Ava sometime in the near distant future. For now I can’t handle starting something that I don’t think I can finish in less than 3 hours.
She’s not so perfect, but it sure was fun to make a see though top. The sleeves are a bit off. I can’t put my finger on it but something is slightly wrong.
At least I started and finished it on Sunday. I didn’t really follow the directions so I had to make the shoulder seems a tad lower in order to make the neckline work. I think it turned out fairly ok. I’ll keep you updated on the wearability.
