Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

The Bronte top

I feel slightly victorious that I have been able to keep up with blogging. And a little bit of sewing too! :) Yay!

My next pattern is the Bronte top from Jennifer Lauren Vintage.

Again it was part of a pattern parcel. This was a really awesome pattern parcel.

I used another knit from my knits I purchased from G street fabrics that one shopping trip. :) I am still working through these fabrics!
I used the pink and royal blue chevron like fabric. But it was thin so I selected another pink fabric to line underneath. So double cutting, but I also used the pink for the binding strips. I thought it would be a fun twist of a vintage pattern with a modern, funky fabric. It was pretty easy to sew. The size was spot on and perfect! LOVE! That's why I sewing independent patterns!

Here is my new shirt! I know it is a bit bright but I love it! 

Just the side/back view- the fit is really good!

I got a lot of compliments on this top. Really comfy too. I am really happy with the outcome and I will make again. I will try for a long sleeve probably this winter.

This top is so flattering on you - the fit and the style. No wonder you would want to make lots of this in different fabrics!
