Nicey Jane babydoll top


A couple of weeks ago I mentioned I was developing a few clothing patterns, because I wanted something to reflect my personal style. Besides, most store-bought clothes never really fit me well. I started off with a ruffled skirt pattern - nothing too complicated and quick to sew.
Then I advanced to this babydoll top, a bit more complicated and requiring a good amount of forethought. I chose the main fabric from Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane collection - full-blown roses on a cream background. The bodice part is twisted, much like a Swiss cheese stick! I can't remember where I got the fabric from, but I do know it is called 'hunky dory' - cute, huh? It took me a couple of tries to get the 'twist' just right to make it look symmetrical. I inserted a side zipper to make putting it on easier. Since it's so cold here I'm wearing it with a simple, white long-sleeved Tee, but it's intended to be worn without anything under, preferably on a hot beach somewhere on the Seychelles ;-)

Next up: a tunic.

Have a great week!

  3. Yes, I would say that is just your style. Way cute. And props to you for attempting a challenge! I think I like your train of thought...make tank tops in an effort to convince someone to take you on vacation;)
