Happy Spring!

April 2, 2018

 

What a wonderful Easter weekend we just had full of family, great food, beautiful weather, and spiritual uplift!  This will be a weekend to remember.  

 

I also remember coming to Utah from Southern Alberta during the Easter break when I was growing up.  It was always a lot warmer in Utah and I loved going shopping and seeing all of the florals and spring colors in the clothing. Now that I live in Utah, I appreciate that nice weather every year and I still love the florals and spring colors.  This year I have spent a bit of time creating my own pieces to wear and I am pleased with how cute this top turned out.  

 

 

I am in love with this jade color and the big sleeves and huge bow just add some really fun elements to this wrap top, which I am also in love with this year. 

 

 

The pattern for this is from a dress, Simplicity 8013, but I just made the top part.  I could go back in and make the skirt for it as well at a later date if I wanted to and wear the two pieces together but still have the option to wear them as separates.  For now, I have only the top to wear and it is just the cutest! Because it is just the top of the dress, it is somewhat of a short top, but when I wear it with high-waisted jeans, it totally works. 

 

 The pattern for this calls for 7.5-10 yds. of fabric depending on the width of the fabric.  I used about 3 yds. for the top.  The sleeves use quite a bit of fabric but are so full and flowy!!  The total cost of this top was under $25 plus a few hours of creative time.  Well worth it!  And it was just perfect for an Easter egg collection with Miss E!  

 

 

 

 

 

 Happy Spring Everyone!!!
