Pretty Summer Tops to Sew


Well summer is officially over now - but here in Queensland we are lucky enough to be able to wear summer clothes for another couple months yet.

I found this cute pattern recently - it's a free pattern and really simple to make.

The only part I struggled with was the bias binding - I just never seem to get it quite right! but I think I did 'ok' here....I just used some lightweight voile I picked up recently at Spotlight for about $12m. 

I also made a simple shoulder tie top for myself - this top took about half and hour. I just made up the pattern myself - but there are plenty of free online patterns you can follow - just look up 'pillow case top' or 'simple top to sew'.

Well I better get out there and enjoy the last of the warm days here!
