Why do weekends go so fast? I love having my peeps home on the weekend and doing fun things with them. This weekend, Ally & I hit up the flea market in McKinney, Texas. I've been wanting to add Milk Glass pieces to my collection and I love me some vintage pyrex. I scored on both counts this weekend! Yay!
Also on the agenda, planning for her upcoming graduation party. We had some fun at Party City & then I decided to sew some garland for decorating....
On Sunday I spent most of the afternoon making myself an Esme Top (pattern by Sew Liberated).
As always with Sew Liberated patterns, I loved this one! The fit is spot on and the construction is well explained. I do wish some of the seams were finished differently, but overall it's a terrific pattern.
The fabric I used is Windham Fabrics Garden Party Tango. It has the most wonderful feel & drape to it, perfect for garment sewing. I did make one change to the pattern. I did not put the band on the bottom of the sleeves as the pattern called for. I just prefer my sleeves to hang loose. I hemmed them up (by machine) a bit shorter than the pattern and I am quite happy with them. In fact, I am very happy with the whole top!
So, a productive weekend here. What about you? Did you do or make anything fun this weekend?
