    Haven't sewn a garment in a looooong time. And motherhood has taken it's toll on my wardrobe. Jeans & t-shirts being the uniform of choice.

    I needed something that I could use to "dress-up" jeans or wear with pants when I go on a date with HandyMan (DH).

    So I made this. Learned gathering and did some seam finishes and worked with bias tape that I made from the fabric so it matched perfectly, instead of "sorta".

    Very, very good sewing, so straight and even. Love the fabric, so light and airy.

    Looks fantastic to me.
    But I've got to tell you. I didn't read all the way through your post, just glanced, saw that you made something and scrolled down to the pix so that I could hurry and see it. Being a person that never wears jeans, only dresses, I though, "WOW, that's one short dress. I hope she doesn't drop anything that she'll have to pick up." Then I went back and read the entire thing and realized it was a top. LOLLOLLOL

    Here's the pattern link....

    http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m538...ay&list=search

    I did the ruffly version without the ruffles. Not a big fan of froo-froo and fluff...

    And thanks to everyone for your comments :)
