mums top.

Antrim, Co Antri...






I bought this sewing magazine while i was in spain with mum. I love finding anything to do with sewing while i’m away! Be it fabric patterns etc. This is one fabulous magazine. Everything in this i would make. It’s just a really great mag that has all the basics you could do so much with.
this is my 100th project and i am so glad its my wonderful mums top. Mums friend admired her top and said it could’ve been made for her? An old expression if you got a good fitting garment!! My mum said it was made to fit her! And made by her daughter xx

    This wrap top is just a hit with the pattern and fabric. It suits your mum a lot!!! Whatever girls from your family wear, they look great:-)

    By the way, I have the same magazine but Ukrainian edition and would like to try Japanese garden and a White jacket with black lace some day.

      Any magzine surely has to add some time to their pattern as a bonus for a sewer:-)

    Oh… It’s a good fit! She looks awesome! What a pretty lady, she’s so cool! It’s always fun to go & look for fabric while on holiday! Oh Spain, it’s so far from Canada. They have good textiles. It’s like a kid in a candy shop!

    Your Mum looks lovely in her beautiful ‘daughter made top’. It really does look good as it is a great fit. This Spanish magazine also looks good.
