What I wore: They were sitting, they were talking in the strawberry swing..

I now make clothes.
Ha no not really, well kinda, I really like this certain style of top but mum always says, 'they're so easy to make, don't buy it, we'll do it one day'.. well that day came. I chose 3 different types of material and on we went. 
Mum already has the pattern so I set to pinning and cutting

We did a tailors tack

Then paired top and bottom together

We folded in the collar and pinned the sides

I tried it on (and decided on no sleeves)

It was prickley and hurt ha. 

but here is the finished piece, 

Almost a staceyface but not quite, just caught unawares ha

Some jumping photo's, inspired by Kaylah

and she's right

they're so much fun

even if..

you're by yourself

and have no one to laugh with.

Seen as the top has lots of strawberries on it, what better accessory than a sparkly apple?
 'None' I hear you say? Well, I have to agree. 

So in conclusion, my mum was right. These tops are easy to make. I already have the blue version and I'm anticipating the black version, I think I'm going to become addicted... Have you ever tried making anything?
