another top

Since this butterick pattern (5463)  is so easy I decided to make more!
I love Nicey Jane Fabrics! And I love how every top is so different even though I used the same pattern.
You will notice on this top I pleated it in the middle and it is because this fabric is a little more heavy weight so it doesn't lay quit right so that is why I added the pleats.

If you hop over to my last post you will see it only takes about 45 minutes to make one top....but if you are going to make 1 then you might as well make 2! I love how it appears to have sleeves however I did not sew a different piece for the sleeves. All you do is sew the front to the back hem the raw edges!
This one is more casual and made out of a thin knit and I didn't make a sashing for it.

It's not my favorite top but just something I whipped up!

but this one is my absolute favorite and I'm going to enter it in the spring top sew along.
I'm also going to link up to these parties too:

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
