Because it was there ...

I was tidying up and packing away leftover bits of fabric the other day and I realised I had enough of this spot fabric from the Vogue 9668 dress I made in November to make yet another McCalls 5661 top. It seemed sensible to me to sew this instead of packing the fabric away. As the buttons and thread all came from my stash, I consider this to be a free top! Looks like I've got another TNT pattern now. I didn't even open the envelope to look at the instructions.

This afternoon I started on a BWOF dress. I think it's 05-2007-117 but I can't remember for sure. You'll see it in a few days.

Thanks to everyone for the comments on my jacket and dress. I really love the dress and hope that the weather clears up soon so I can wear it. In the meantime, the rain keeps coming ...

Perfect use for your leftover remnant! Projects like that are why my sewing room never gets fully cleaned up. I'll run across something and think, "Oh, it will be easier to do something with this than put it away" and three weeks later I have a bunch of projects and a still messy sewing room!

I really like that top. You just reminded me that I have this pattern. A must try for sure.

I love this style of top, and what a great way to use your leftover fabric.

That's a very nice top.

I am soooo excited that this might be the answer you were looking for too. Sometimes I have these ideas that at first seem so great, then I talk myself out of them. I think this one will work! Let me know if you use it too.
