It’s Friday! That means this is the last top showcase for Spring Top Week. It’s been great to see all the creativity, fun spring prints, and popularity of certain styles. I was amazed by how many of you sewed a top for yourself for the very first time! That is so so wonderful and I’m glad this challenge could be a catalyst for all that Selfish Sewing!
Here they are, in no particular order:
LEFT: Liz of me and t made a madras dress with BuiltByWendy’s Simplicity 3835
CENTER: Shellie from by a thread made an airy white top with a Jennifer Stern pattern

: : VOTE UPDATE : :
OK, so I need to take a break from all this top-compiling…phew! Check back on Monday in order to vote for Best Top. The voting will probably happen through the end of next week in order to whittle it down to a winner, most likely with a schedule something like this:
First Round of Voting: Monday-Tuesday
Final Round Voting: Thursday-Friday
I have also re-opened the Flickr pool so that you can edit the captions on your photos if you would like (or the photos, if you feel you need to…I think that cropping square before you upload will give the best results). I recommend making sure that any blog entries you have written for your tops are linked in the description, as the vote pictures will link back to your Flickr pic, not your blog.
You may also add more tops if you would like!
See you this afternoon with another top from moi…
