Happy new year to me!
Today I am 38 years older, wiser, with a whole new patch of grey hair. I’m still not sure why they are coming in so fast.
I was able to spend the night before my birthday sewing. This was a treat. I went pattern shopping, picked up 2 pieces of fabric at JoAnns and I repurposed an old dress.
This top is mccall’s 7780 made in a golden yellow linen blend from joanns.
This top is certainly on trend with the exposed shoulders and boxy fit.
The other top was repurposed fabric from a maternity dress I’d made in 2015.
I cut the top off and used the skirt portion for my pattern, mccall’s 7779. I had to be creative placing the fabric pieces though.
I believe it turn out cute. The fabric is a printed challis. The back of this too is really fun and has lots of movement.
I celebrated my birthday with family and friends, supported a black owned basketball franchise the St. Louis Surge and also had dinner at a local business Sugarfire BBQ.
I’m thankful for the 37 years that have passed and look forward to an exciting year 38!!
