girls wear pink to make the boys wink

at least, that's what my mother in law tells me. i fell in love with this pink fabric from joel dewberry's line over a year and a half ago. i ordered enough of it to make the built by wendy top (simplicity 3835) but only managed to sew it this weekend.

i think i procrastinated because i worried the fabric wouldn't be right for a garment. i had only seen it used in quilts and other crafty projects, but not a shirt. it was a simple enough pattern that i decided to just try it and hope for the best. and i'm pretty happy with the results.


it's a little boxy, but i kind of like that about it. and i think the fabric was a perfect choice. i wish i made this a lot sooner. maybe i'll make up for that by making a couple more. and there's also that summer dress i've been meaning to make myself since last year too!

Pretty in Pink Sandy - super cute top. I bought Wendy's books a while ago and have yet to make anything - thanks for the incentive.
