Sewing Project for this Week

Sorry for the bathroom picture but it was raining outside and I just finished this top and thought I would snap a photo of it.  Will be cutting out the next project tomorrow. *Yes I did finish up my blue satin jacket, just need to get a photo of that. 

My sewing project this week is this top which is the pink view. I'm using cotton for the top and silk for the lining both from my stash. The silk is a really different color sort of a light copper. I made this all today and one sleeve left to put in and the buttons and I'm done. This material goes really well with black. I made one of these ages ago for my daughter in a yellow rosebud print lined in a cream silk.

This is just gorgeous, Nan! Wish I lived near you so I could soak up some of your wonderful sewing skills! Not one of my gifts, I'm afraid!

Hope your day is lovely, my friend!

Nan that fabric is gorgeous. Love the print, small and modern. Do hope your package arrives soon. It was sent 10 days ago. I am off to the fabric store to pick up a few notions that are on sale. Amazing work you are doing here....smiles...Renee

I sewed a few dresses for my sister when she was a little girl, as ready made dresses were very expensive in India. How ever for my daughter I sewed only a couple because being a full time clerk and a Mom of three is much more time consuming tha being a teenage sister. Also perfection was not expected from me. My daughter loves to sew, however there are no taylors around here and I am not a good teacher. Where did you learn?

Nan, this is so pretty, you are super fast! I like the pink lining. I can't wait till it's finished. It's going to be one of those blouses you wear often.
