spring tops

Easy! Easy! Easy! I promise!
Only 2 pieces!
Now do I have your attention? I made 2 of these in about 1hr 30mins.
The secret is to cut out the fabric for 2 shirts.  
Pinning and cutting the fabric is the most consuming part... 
so you might as well cut 2 out at the same time.

This is the pattern I used. Its a butterick pattern for a blouse. I followed the instructions for the light blue shirt in the front. And is only 2 pieces! Sew the front to the back and finish off the raw edges.
I love how it has sleeves but you don't need to cut out a separate piece to make the sleeves. 
 I didn't make a sash(belt) for them but I think the orange one needs one. this floral one is just very casual.
So have I inspired you? It's a great way to add to your wardrobe.  
And I also made 2 more!  Well, I made another one with Nicey Jane Fabric and I have to sew up the other one....They come in two's! I will be sure to share those with you as well. (in another post)
So I found this sew a long and I'm going to enter just for fun even though I know my tops are not cute cute (just cute) I just love how simple they are and if you are a beginner sewer then you can do this!
I will be posting to these parties:
