Weekend Sewing Pt.2

The skirt was made from a Simplicity pattern. I don't have the number handy but it almost got tossed. I decided to keep it because I can wear it for work on those days when I don't know what to wear, LOL!
Butterick 5356 was the one I had to finish on Sunday evening. Well didn't have to, just wanted it done so I didn't have anything (else) unfinished for the upcoming week. I made View D, a loose-fitting pullover with gathers in the front and stitched hems all around. I made my own bias trim for the neckline from the leftover fabric. Can't beat that. Saved time & money and it matches exactly everytime.
Vogue 7883 has been cut out for awhile. A super easy pullover top with shaped hem and long sleeves.
I've made quite a few tops in the past two weekends. It was something I needed to do in order to give myself more options. I will probably wear a lot of jean bottoms but also I plan to make a few skirts and capri pants to go with these tops and what I already have in my wardrobe for even more choices.
Happy Sewing!

I made vogue 7883 last summer. Yours is much cuter than mine!! I decided I look awful in boat necks. I think I wore it once . Oh well, a lesson learned.
