Mommy's Late Kimono | Simplicity 1108

Hello friends! I'm back with some selfless sewing!

Over a year ago, my mom was looking through my stash and pointed out a piece of fabric and told me she wanted a kimono out of it. I said "okay" and proceeded to not take any steps to make said kimono lol

Well, this year I decided I should be a better daughter and resolved to make her the kimono of her dreams.

Sewcialist Mini Challenge | White McCall's 7573

Hello, friends! I'm back with another top! Last month, Sewcialists had a mini-challenge going on Instagram and it pushed me to go ahead and get something done out of my queue. It was a color challenge where we would "spin" a wheel and we would have to sew something of the color that we were given. I got "white".... just like I wanted LOL. 

So I made McCall's 7573, view C, and I cut the 12. I had been wanting to make this top for quite some time so I'm happy this challenge kicked my butt into gear.

A little sleeve Fringe | Simplicity 8601

Hello, Friends!
I'm back with a top that I made almost an entire year ago... but I still have it and wear it so you can imagine that this is going to be a very positive post.

This top is Simplicity 8601, View D, minus the ruffle, plus the fringe from View B.

As you can see, I'm still building my closet with cute quick tops. It seems like I get into one mode and I forget to sew with diversity. Years ago, I would only make sundresses. Then it was outerwear/cardigans, and now it's tops. My next thing will surely be bottoms.
