Easing in

Another little sewing project to ease me back into sewing. I don't have many sewing minutes of late but I still feel the need to sew a little during the light evenings. I have a head full of ideas for the summer holidays but very little time.

As previously mentioned, I had a surprise fabric parcel which arrived on my back doorstep. This beautiful piece of viscose was in the bag and I knew it was enough for a vest style top as soon as I held it up and admired it. 


It took me while to find the right pattern. I looked at the free sorbetto top but didn't have enough ink to print it out; a free tunic pattern I had since lost from the GBSB first book and then I found this one in my pattern box: Newlook 6035. I thought I would give it a try.

Just in time for a warm weekend. 

Thank you once again Lady Melchett. I have saved a little piece for one more thing that is on my mind which I will show you soon.

Hope you having a lovely weekend. Jo xxx


  1. Lovely fabric and I really like the style, it looks great on you and the little gathers at the front are brilliant. I can relate to not having much time, it's scary how the days fly by.

  2. A perfect top in a gorgeous fabric. Enjoy the sunshine. B x

  3. I love everything in this top, the fabric, the gathers, the shape, all. Enjoy the sunny days ahead xx

  4. Jo, it is so lovely. I love the fabric choice and your pattern is perfect. Enjoy!

  5. The patern colours and print are fab and yet again you have created a beautiful summer top which looks great on you too. Have a good week x

  6. Gorgeous! I have that fabric pattern in a dress, a t shirt front and I also made a top for my friend as she loved it that much. What a nice surprise. x
