The Juliet Top (Finally)!

I saw this pattern for the Juliet top by Pink Fig. I finally bought it, but unfortunately it has been sitting in my closet for some time waiting for me to make something with it.

Then I was shopping at Hobby Lobby and can you believe I found these super cute fabrics there? I absolutely love them, and kind of want to make everything with them. Anyhow, I bought the fabric and then it sat again for another 2-3 weeks.
Freezing outside, and not too camera happy.
Much more happy once we went inside the garage.
FINALLY I decided it was time to focus, and make this shirt. It did not take longs since the instructions were very easy to follow. The only problem is my cheapy sewing machine doesn't do automatic buttonholes. Do you know how hard it is to get buttonholes even when not using an automatic button stitch. Well it is hard for me anyway.

Lucky for my several friends have nice sewing machines and I was FINALLY able to truly finish this shirt. I think it turned out pretty cute, and I still love the fabrics. Maybe I should make some kitchen towels with the same fabric. We well see. I still need to get my hands on some Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey, Woodland Delight by Paula Prass, and Meadowsweet by Sandi Henderson.

So, I am glad to finally have that project finished and to now have time to make more purses for the shop.

  1. Haha! I understand the "get the supplies to make a project and then let it sit" problem. Life gets in the way sometimes and then I have to talk myself back into doing the work.

    Love me some Heather Bailey! I've been picking up a snippet here and there and then a whole slew for my bedroom.
