Yoke Top- Is it too much?

Added Jul 26, 2008

Cecil, Pennsylva...






Okay, so my father bought me this fabric and I thought I would make another BBW top since I loved the first so much. After slaving away at the sewing machine all day, I proudly show hubby, and all he could say was “it looks like you are wearing a giant tie.”
So please, all comments welcome- is it too much? I was thinking skinny jeans and flats with it… now I am afraid to leave the house!

    It’s great! Some dark denim jeans would go great with this! :)

    I love the fabrics you use! This top is really daring in term of print combination, but it works!

    Thanks so much everyone. I got the fabric from Joanns. Its an alexander henry print (the floral) and it was found in the novelty quilters cotton print section. The polka dot is just a random quilters cotton print.

    I love it. I don`t think it`s too much. It would be great with jeans. Where did you get the material. It`s awsome.

    Its so cute! If you wore it with a patterned bottom half it would def be too much but with something plain and simple on the bottom it looks great. I find men don’t seem to ‘get’ some of the cute clothes (no offence hubby!)

    Thanks. I don’t have a problem with it at all, but it seems like everyone else is put off by it. I appreciate your opinion. Thanks so much for commenting!

    I personally think it is very fun. As long as you feel comfortable wearing it, I think it looks great. It’s very well made and is something different and exciting. I love the fabric prints and colors. Well done!
