I've been in a bit of a creative funk lately but I've been trying to push myself to do some sewing and work on other projects in the studio thinking that a few finishes might get me energized for some quilty fun again.
Earlier in the summer I bought some of this beautiful knit. It is from Bari J's new Emmy Grace line for Art Gallery Fabrics. If you have not had the pleasure of sewing with the new Art Gallery knits you are in for a treat. This fabric is seriously the best and softest knit I have ever seen. I want a whole new wardrobe from Art Gallery knits.
I used Rae's Flashback Skinny Tee pattern and made a new top for Miss P to wear to school. I used size 7/8 and added a couple of inches to the length and it fits her perfectly.
As I have gotten older I find that I prefer V neck shirts for myself. Although I used to only wear round neck tops, I now feel like a regular round neck tee is strangling me. I ordered some fun new V neck tees for myself from Patchwork Threads and culled the tees in my dresser.
I found a few like new shirts with those strangling necklines and cut them down for Miss P. Again, I used the Flashback Skinny Tee pattern. I was able to keep the original hem on the bottom and the sleeves when I cut the new pieces out. I picked out the neckband, trimmed it to the right length, and stitched it back on to the new shirt.
I feel a bit better after finishing some tops and Miss P is pleased as punch with her super soft Emmy Grace knit top for fall. She has some light blue fabric that she is wanting to make into a top for herself. Maybe we'll get to that after her current binge into her brothers' legos and k'nex collections.
I'm linking up with Amanda Jean's Finish it up Friday.
