One of the most difficult steps in sewing is deciding what to sew. I wanted to pick something easy to stimulate my dormant sewing mojo.
After poring over my many sewing patterns and sewing books, I went with a free downloadable pattern from Colette Patterns - a summer top in the dead of Sydney winter.
So waiting for me patiently on my sewing table are the 2 pattern pieces in some leftover silk fabric from Tessuti. I had to work my magic to make the pieces fit even without the front pleat.
Dare I say it?
I cut it on the crosswise grain.
*my imaginary sewing readers shudder*
Yup, I'm a rebel.
