Well this was originally the catch up post for 19 July, but I couldn’t get photos.
Catching up on photos might be more like it. I apologize for the awful photo quality, but since it has taken about a month and a half to get these photos I don’t want to wait until I have a chance to do it again. Here are some of the tops I made, based on the spring ruffle top tutorial by Made by Rae. They look better in person and are very comfortable. I varied the sleeves for each and changed the pleats to gathers for a number of them because even with additional pleats it didn’t lie well over my bust. I may try a variation that adds elastic for an empire waist in the future so that they have a little more shape to them. This summer also saw a variation on Heather Ross’s Mendocino Sundress (still waiting for pic), my Vertical Patchwork Hippy Dress (tutorial by imwomn13) (I have since posted pictures of this elsewhere, but I wanted it to be linked to the tutorial.), 2 reversible wrap skirts (tutorial by Melissa Hart of the Cordelia Files) and one more sundress.
