New Top with Touch from the Past




This has to be the quickest and easiest shirt to make, ever. I love the fit, and how they just say summer. I used some chambray that is very soft and a great hue of blue. The best part is the trim on the sleeves. My mom gave this to me over the weekend. When I was growing up my mom kept all of her trims and ribbons in a drawer. I would go through the drawer and make requests, a dress with this ribbon , or a shirt with this ribbon. Luckily my mom saved all of them. While sewing on the trim last night I could remember looking at it long ago. Thank you, mom.

It's just adorable! And I love that it has trim that's been special to you since you were a child.

Love all the beautiful clothes you make your daughter - you are right the trim just finishes this one off! How special that is was from your Mum's stash.

Hi Lisa - I keep coming back to this one - can I ask which pattern you used? I'm having difficulties finding a pattern for a peasant blouse in Frida's size (68-74 cm)...

I love this top. The trim on the sleeve is great looking.
