Description

Any time i have a spare hour or two i like to make a couple of tops. I love these patterns so much that i made three on tuesday. Sewing takes my mind of lifes problems and stresses. These tops are so easy to wear and they wash well to. I see perspex shoes are in all the shops now. I’ve had these two pairs years but they’re gorgeous. they have
silver steel heels as well and the silver ones go with everything x

    Hey Mary,

    I just love these tops and I can’t get over the fact that you can bust out 2 or 3 of these in just a couple of hours. Very Impressive.

      thank you fot the lovely comment. i’m like a woman pocessed when i sew lol. It must come from the sewing factories i worked in years ago, speed was of am essence if you wanted a good pay. then i worked for Jeagers ( very expensive) where we stood up sewing, it took me a while to get used to sewing sitting down again lol.x

    Mary, your sewing machines would have to be the busiest in the world. All of your tops are lovely and they look great on you and your Mum. Like you, I sew to keep busy and to forget about life’s stresses. When I lost my little dog in 2011, I joined BurdaStyle and it helped me through my loss. Now I can’t stop sewing and buying fabric, although I am not as productive as you.

      thanks schnui, grief does strange things to you. i know how you feel about your we dog. these tops are super easy and take an hour each. i did’nt want to mention it but i made the dress in the pic a well. its out of the new burda it just needs hemmed. and if i go out sat?? i’ll have it on me. the tie dyed one not the spotty one. the fabrics so soft and gorgeous and is lined in gorgeous fabric as well x

    Lovely tops Mary and they are so versatile and can wear with your favorite jeans. So sorry for your lost. Sewing really does calm the mind and all the stresses that life offers at times.
