Pattern: Vogue 8258 (view A)
Size: V8258 comes in sizes S (8-10), M (12-14) & L (16-18) - I made size S.
Fabric: Butterfly print cotton crinkle & white cotton blend eyelet; both fabrics are from Fabricland. Sorry, no picture of the eyelet, but it's pretty much just standard white eyelet - nothing fancy.
Comments: I had a couple of pieces of fabric left over from two dresses I made last summer and they kept begging for my attention. Since I didn't have a lot of either fabric, I needed a pattern that used a small amount. I have always liked this pattern, but when I bought it, I had no idea which fabric I would use for it. Well, it must be kismet, because the pattern and the leftover fabrics were meant to be.
The two tops went together quite quickly - I actually made both tops and a dress (which I'll post about later) in a day and a half. I love instant gratification! I really like how the two tops look and they will look cute worn over white tank tops on hot days.
Conclusion: I really like this pattern and I have plans to make it again in some burnout velvet. I can see view C done in the fabric below that is in my stash:
Update on Go With the Flow Dress: Obviously, I have not done much more on this dress since I have been sewing other things. I will be getting back to it this afternoon, though. Sometimes I just need to step away from an involved project to clear my mind. And what better way to clear one's mind than to sew? I find if I am having a brain block on a major project sewing something fun and easy can often help unclog the neurons. So, stay tuned - I hope to have the bodice completely constructed by this evening.
