Spring Top Submission: "Day to Date Night"

This is my 2nd submission for Spring Top week. It's kinda addicting! This top is different from my first submission "In Full Bloom" in that I didn't use a pattern! It's a little intimidating working from scratch and to be perfectly honest it's not at all what I intended, but I love it all the same:)

My thoughts behind the day/date night top are this...I often feel rushed getting the kids fed, bathed, and ready for bed before the babysitter gets here so I wanted a top that I could wear during the day and if need be turn it into something more appropriate for a date night. I used Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks fabric. This fabric and I have mentioned it in previous posts is so nice to work with. The day/date night top has elastic at the top and through the mid-section. I wanted something I could take off and on easily. The shoulder straps can easily be tucked into the shirt to give it a different look. The bottom of the shirt is serged using a rolled hem with yellow pearl crown thread. The belt and roses on the belt are also serged with the same thread. The belt is be fastened by a snap.

You can wear it by day...
and night!
