Spring Top Week

Pin It Now! Ok folks, you have less than one week left to submit your entries for Made by Rae's Spring Top Week contest! Here are the three tops I entered.

I call this one the Pintuck Peasant Top. Original design by me, inspired by my maternity moomoo, which I still love, love, love to wear. Cotton/Linen blend fabric (from Joann's).

I made a floor length linen skirt to go with it... and of course I'm a sucker for matching mother/daughter outfits, so Ashlyn got an outfit as well.

Let's simply call this one the Sky Top. It's blue, it's frilly and I'm really not in the mood to rack my brain for a better name. Original design by me. Cotton/Lycra blend fabric in aqua with grey contrast stitching. Thinking of offering this style in my shop... we'll see.

And finally, the Darling Top in black linen, featuring a peter pan collar, linen rose and gathered empire waist. Another original design by me, inspired by my friend's grandma's moomoo. You must think I'm obsessed with moomoos. Well I am. Have you ever worn one? Heaven.


Happy Sewing

Super cute. I thought about entering that too, but then no ideas came to mind for myself.

I love what you cam up with.
