DIY - Burda Style Pattern 7065



I have to admit.  I was so nervous to start this project.  Everything always looks great on the pattern envelope.  When you finally get the guts to start and sometimes get to the finished product, you look at it like WTH!!  Then it either gets seam ripped apart, scraped, put on a hanger in the back of your closet or balled up on the floor in the back of your closet.



This is 2 yards of fabric purchased from Vogue Fabrics from Chicago, IL.
This company was one of the vendors at the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo I attended this past April.  The fabric is part of the Galleria Knit Collection.




NOT THIS TIME!!  This is the first time that I have started, followed through and finished an actual printed pattern bought from a store.  I am very happy with how it came out. 


It was great to only have to use TWO pieces to construct this top.



I used washers from my local hardware store as pattern weights.  They are crocheted now.




 I always use my Ideal Seam Guide (click link to be taken to the post about this amazing tool) to keep my stitch line straight!!



The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow.




In the pictures above and below this description I use a tool called the EZ- Threader.  I also bought this tool at the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo from the same vendor listed above.  I am not sure if this is their tool but it is great to get elastic, rope, piping, etc through casing.  It's a lot easier than the safety pin method.  Oh...another tool I can't live without.



The halter tube is made the same way pants legs are made.  Turning one side, right side out and sticking it the tube that is the wrong side and sewing it.


So this is the finished look.

The Back!!!


The Front!!!


It is still WAY TO COLD in New England for me to wear this outside.  This is the reason why you can't see it all styled up in an outfit yet.  I will do an update post the day that I wear it out.

I will definitely make this pattern again in different fabric.  I may even extend the length and make it a tighter night out dress instead of the flowing one in View B.

Until Next Time

DIY -- Hello Kitty Scrub Top -- OOTD

DIY - Hello Kitty Scrub Top What I Wore Today
 Fabric from Joann Fabrics I'm not sure if you can buy this particular print online, but I did see it in a few of their retail stores. 
I used Wrights Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape accent the pockets and around the top.
 If you haven't read my About Me page yet, I state that I work full-time in the medical field.  I don't have to wear scrubs all the time, but when I want to be comfortable it's my go to option!!  I was tired of seeing the same scrub tops I was wearing that day on other co-workers in the hospital and smiling at each other because we didn't know what else to say.

I felt like I was in People Magazine on the "Who Wore It Better" page.

So I decided to start making my own tops!!  This is the 2nd scrub top that I have ever made.  The first one I made ended up being a complete bust (My Failure) and I never took a pic of it.  I definitely learned for my mistakes (My Triumph) and came out with what I c…

Scrub - A - Dub Sunday!! DIY - Scrub Tops

DIY - Scrub Sunday!!



I buckled down and add four more scrub tops to my work wardrobe.  I did this really for two reasons.
1) I like how easy and fast it is for me at this moment, very calming and non-stressful sewing!
2) I enjoy the compliments I get from my co-worker for having original scrub tops!
If you have not read my Fabric Haul 2 post, please check it out.  There you will find a description of all the fabric I used for these scrub tops.

My son decided that he wanted to draw all over my pocket template.

It seemed easier for me to just cut all the fabric out and just sew everything at once.

The only thing that was time consuming on these scrubs was changing the thread to match the color of the bias tape being used.



The finished products!! So happy!! Can't wait to wear them.
