About Me

Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

Harlow, meet Telio!

Do you lust over StyleArc patterns as much as I do?  When this one first came out, I snatched it up.  Do you blame me?
Swing top with on trend bell sleeve

This is a simple swing top with split lower sleeves that are bell shaped.

What drew me to the top were the sleeves of course!

I really, really, really love my fabric choice.  It is by Telio and I purchased it at Fabric.com.  It is rayon and has a beautiful drape, perfect for this top.  

This was super simple to put together.  I would say it was less that 2.5 hours start to finish and I was taking my time!

I love how this floats from me in the front.  

See that dramatic split sleeve?  I lengthened the slit.  It was supposed to be only 4 or so inches, but I made my at least 5, after it was hemmed.  If you are going for drama, go big!

Those sleeves are so cool!

This isn't the best photo of me, but DH caught me mid-swing.  

I love my new top!
thanks for reading!
