green eyelet top

I love that I’ve added a number of pieces to my wardrobe this summer. It makes me smile and feel accomplished knowing that I’m wearing something that I made with my own two hands!

This one is another version of Simplicity’s 4607. (You can see my previous one here.)

I purchased this cotton eyelet fabric at Joann’s a few months ago when I became interested in making some tops for this season. This one does not disappoint! It’s cool and cute and easy to wear. One thing that I modified was the facing bits. The pattern calls for using a suitable woven interfacing for those pieces but I didn’t want any white to show through the eyelet. I omitted that step completely and just used the facing pieces as is. It doesn’t take away from the structure of the garment and it still feels comfortable.

When I showed Mike this new piece, his comments were, “That’s awesome! But what are you going to wear underneath it? That fabric is sort of see-through?” My response, “I have a green bra, and who cares!” LOL
