Sewing Tops

This past week I made a couple of tops -

The pattern is from Jalie - Sewing Patterns , another Canadian designer, this one is the Adèle Flutter Sleeve Top.
I enjoyed making the first one so much I had to make another! The pattern was very easy to sew, and well explained. It has some great details that worked out so beautifully (maybe it has been such a long time since I have made clothes, but the new patterns seems magical!).
The first one I made was the light pink one, out of handwoven Thai silk that I had bought earlier in the year at the local quilt show. I found the fabric a bit too stiff for this pattern (although the fabric is not really stiff) so the ruffles stand out a bit.

For the red one I used a very lightweight rayon that was perfect. I decreased the width of the ruffles to about 2.5 inches, and I am so happy with how it turned out.

All the best!♥︎
