Spring Wear

It's starting to get hot down here in the South. Just a few weeks ago, I switched out all my winter clothes for my summer clothes - though living down in SC, my real winter clothes never really make an appearance.

My wardrobe is in need of some updating, so how could I resist when I found the Spring Top Tutorial from Made by Rae over at Sew Mama Sew, I figured I'd give it a shot.

I've never made any clothes other than some pajama pants (well, there was that sweatshirt I made in 7th grade home ec. class...though that one is probably best still suited for simply gardening or never leaving the house). But anyways, with very little practice, I took a stab. Here's how it turned out...

I couldn't get it to hang flat anywhere that had natural to the grass we go...

I really like the contrast of the two fabrics.

It was definitely a learning experience, and I don't know if I'll be starting another one soon. It's a wonderful tutorial and very easy to follow - I may just stick with buying my clothes and spending my sewing time on my other crafting. But, perhaps, if I learned as much as I think I did with this one, I may try it again!


  1. I used to make all my clothes and enjoyed doing it just seems lie a chore to cut them out. The top is very cute, you will have to model it for us.

  2. Nice top! I love the red fabric and the contrast detail on the strap. I'm visiting my in-laws in SC (Greenville/Spartanburg) this weekend, so I'm excited to break out the summer clothes, too!
