This top originally started out as a muslin. I love the top at first glance but was not sure how it would look on me. So, I decided to use some cotton (very thin) fabric that I got from Walmart for $1.50 per yard. I like the fabric when I saw it but I knew it would not be used for anything significant, and I couldn't snub my nose at $1.50 per yard of anything that was half way cute.
Immediately upon completion I love it (still not hemmed), but again, me being overly happy to share. I pulled out some pretty bright yellow Ponte Roma Knit, and I can't wait to make it in the knit.
Of course my picture sucks. Still working on that. I bought a Canon Rebel yadda yadda yadda and a tripod, that I have no idea how to use. But that is another post all together.
My version of M6497
