It was another close vote yesterday but we have another finalist. Thanks to everyone for voting and congratulations to Edith! And a fantastic job done by everyone, what an impressive top crop!
It’s time to reveal our third group of tops from the Top 60. Enjoy another fine group of beautiful tops and please help me narrow them down to another finalist. Here they are! Voting is on the right sidebar, scroll down below the sponsor buttons.
Here’s my top for today:
I’m slowly but surely learning how to work with knits, and trial and error seems to be my best strategy. I fell in love with this super-soft peach bamboo blend at Field’s in West Michigan a couple months ago and decided it would become one of my spring tops.
A little about my design process: I wanted something with a ruffle detail to make the solid-color top a little more interesting, so I basted a 3″ ruffle along the neckline before sewing the facing in.
PHEW! That was a close one! Adrianna’s top and Sabra’s top were neck and neck, but when I closed the poll this morning, Adrianna was ahead by about 10 votes. Congratulations to Adrianna! Congratulations are in order to all of you from yesterday’s group — that was a most impressive set of tops!
OK, dear readers, I need your help again today to pick another finalist. So here’s Group 2 of the Top 60 you’ll see this week. Another fine group of beautiful tops! Take a look:
Hello everyone! One of the advantages of having this be my blog is that I can divert your attention from voting for today’s tops by showing off one of mine. The other advantage of course is that I didn’t have to have them all finished by Friday night. And really, neither did you. If you’ve just finished up or you finish one this week, please post it to our Spring Top Week Pool! It won’t get entered in the contest anymore, but we’ll still get to see what you’re working on and be inspired by your patterns and ideas.
Right now in my sewing room there is a heap…
Here they are folks, the first group of tops of the Top 60 you’ll see this week! CONGRATULATIONS to these fine entrants, and feel free to take a button to help promote your top. Please tell your friends and family that they’ll only be able to vote for one day (until about 7 AM EST tomorrow morning). You’ll need to vote over on the right sidebar, scroll down past the sponsor buttons.

The judges scores are all in; they have worked hard to evaluate all of the tops that were entered (368, WOW!), and that is no small task (don’t worry, they didn’t all look at every top, we split it up for them…that would have been really cruel). To see ALL of the fabulous tops that were entered, click here. You may also add tops to this pool again if you missed the deadline or just want to show off your sewing.
Myrnie has tallied the judges scores and I am happy to announce that SIXTY TOPS have made it to the next round for reader voting. That means you’ll have twelve tops each day of Spring Top Week (that’s this week, finally!) to…
