Made By Yours Truly

Top sewn by me; Cardigan, pants, and shoes were thrifted

I present to you, my first (clothing) sewing project.  A couple years ago, I got into sewing but never actually made anything.  Much like I queue things ad nauseum on Ravelry, even though I never have time to knit.

Anyways.  I digress.

I read an entire book on sewing called Sew U: Built by Wendy.  If you're ever in need of a basic sewing book, look up that one.  It was very easy to read and understand, and it came with three patterns.

This top is also a Built by Wendy pattern from Simplicity (it's 3835), and it was incredibly easy for a first-time project.  I cut it out and sewed it within one evening.  And!  And.  I got the fabric at Wal-Mart of all places.  This was a very fun project, and I know it won't be my last sewing project.   Next up: a dress for our daughter.

I'm linking up with Carly and Molly for #YOLOMonday.
