Because I just don't sit still well...
...and leaving tomorrow has got me in a bit of a dither.
Everything is as ready as it's going to be, and I just can't relax. What better time to redesign and replicate one of my favorite (purchased) tops! This is a task I've been wanting to do for quite some time.
I traced it out this afternoon and got sewing. Things went well once I remembered how to thread the serger! I've always loved this Asian top I have. It's dark green hemp and sooooo soft! The only thing that has bothered me about it is that it's a little too short in the body.
The new top goes past my hips so when I lift my hand to shade my eyes, reach in the cupboard or wave hello no one will get an unrequested glimpse of my midsection anymore.
Got smarter, too, thanks to the whole bag project...and made a pattern as I went. I may have to make a few more of these. I could live in them, they're so comfortable.
I'll try to post now and then while we're away, but don't count on it. I have a hunch we'll be pretty pooped at night.
All the best,
