Happy Valentine's Day

I've had this pattern for over a year, and finally decided to try it out. Of course I bought the fabric a couple of weeks ago, but didn't cut the fabric out until Wednesday. And then I realized that I didn't have the right color of thread. So Thursday evening I made a "quick" trip to Wal-Mart. Boy, oh boy was that the wrong choice - the store was FILLED with kids buying Valentine's goodies. I probably waited 20 minutes in the check-out line. Needless to say, by the time I got home I was in no mood to sew. So last night I "whipped" up this top...



I really like the pattern - I'll probably work this one into my rotation of standard patterns.

Up next for Megan - Texas Independence Day top, Rodeo top, St. Patrick's Day top, and possibly Mardi Gras top (don't have the fabric for this one yet - but I've seen some at Hancock's and Hobby Lobby.)

Thanks! The pattern is CarlaC's Peasant Top from www.youcanmakethis.com She also has a great A-Line pattern! These two, along with a commercial swing top pattern (Butterick - I think) are my go-to patterns for tops.
