The Not Frumpy Mom Top

I mentioned in my last post that I have always wanted to sew awesome clothing.  Actually it’s more like dreamimg of sewing awesome clothing for me!!  Now don’t think that I will be neglecting my family!  I will be sewing for them along the way.    After all I need to buy fabric, Right? So if  I happen to buy too much (lol like there is suck a thing)I promise I will be sure to make things for everyone.  But me first!

Today I finished the very first thing I have ever sewn for myself, besides purses and bags.  Its a sleevless tunic styly tankish top!!  Yes I know that’s a mouthful but I have yet to cleverly name said top!!

I was searching for a summer tank that provided a bit more coverage than the ones I was finding on the racks.  Something unique, not flashy, comfortable, not too frumpy….you get the idea.  I found a great tutorial and free pattern on pinterest, of all places haha.  It’s called the Sorbetto Top  25cd4b53ff7e9fef6bf9e093685a3546

Of course if you know me, you already know that I do not like to follow directions,  I just had to play around with this pattern.  Not that there was a thing wrong with the original, I just needed to make it mine. This is what I came up with!  And I love it.

I added some length in the middle and the bottom hem, gave it a more A-line feel, and played with the front pleat.  I am very pleased with the results. I now have a comfy, roomy, hide my yoga pants behind, not frumpy top!  And I am already planning the next rendition!

I am all out of cleverness at the moment so please help me name this top!!

See you next time!
