ready, set, sew

Some days (weeks, months) it seems like progress is slow to nonexistent.  Such is the case with my latest sewing project for (wait for it…) myself (!)  *gasp*  I know, really, I can’t think of the last time I made something for myself…it’s been at least since we’ve moved (which is coming up on 2 years)  lots of stuff for the girls, things for the house and for hubby but me?  not so much.

all ready and waiting

Well…I saw this super cute “Tova” top in a post over at Hawthorne Threads blog and thought…this is it!  I ordered up some beautiful cotton lawn from them  (super super nice people with a lovely shop if you are in the market for on-line fabric purchases, hope to visit their actual shop one day!)  I ordered the “Mariella” in grey/pink

Three fitting muslins later, I have cut out the (altered) pattern, picked buttons and found thread to match…then the girls came home from school.  *sigh*  maybe this afternoon?  Fingers crossed friends, fingers crossed.
