It has become of dream of mine to design and construct my own fashion collection someday. Nothing too crazy, just stylish and comfy clothes made for real women. Almost all of my sewing has been self-taught through reading books, articles, and online tutorials– and of course through lots and lots of practice. It’s a skill that I’m continually striving to learn about and develop, but for now I enjoy simply experimenting and creating. This comfy color block top is my latest creation.
I’ve had this green cotton blend fabric for while now, which I actually pulled from my mom’s fabric stash. I’ve looked at it many times but just haven’t been all that inspired about what to do with it. Finally, I saw a top posted on Pinterest and all of the sudden the wheels started turning. I wanted something that would give me the comfort of a sweatshirt but look stylish at the same time. Comfortable, yet put-together is what every woman/mother strives for isn’t it? Well, I think this chic combination of green and grey managed to do the trick (at least for me anyway)! I’m telling you guys, this is probably my new favorite top!
color block top: Handmade (pattern to come) // jeans: JC Penny // flats: Target // necklace: Charlotte Russe // bag: JC Penny
I’m working on creating a pattern to share with all of you in the [hopefully not so distant] future.
And in case you were wondering, I purchased the grey fabric from Girl Charlee Fabrics. This was also the fabric I used to make leggings for my daughter. You can view the full tutorial HERE.
