Inspiration: Spring Top Week

I am feeling really inspired right now (this always happens when I am not sitting in front of my sewing machine!) to make myself a top!  I typically stay away from making my own clothes but have started getting more excited to do so lately.  Hurry up August, you're bringing my mom with you so she can help me! 
For now, I am thoroughly enjoying perusing the many beautiful tops entered into the Spring Top Challenge over at Made by Rae

Blogger and designer Rae has challenged ladies and gentlemen to do a little sewing for themselves and is running a very competitive and top-quality pun intended race for sewing spring tops.  (there are some fabulous prizes to boot!)

I have been looking through the flickr pool of entries and here are some of my favorites

For the record, I am not going to be entering a top this year (that would have taken some actual planning, not a strength of mine at the moment!), but I am really enjoying seeing what everyone else is coming up with it!  

Go check out the flickr pool of photos for yourself and see which ones you like!!


  1. Oh I know what you mean, there are so many cute tops to see in the running. Thanks for sharing mine!

  2. I'm loving seeing all the entries! The swiss dot top is my favorite of the four I've entered, thanks for the shout out!
