The week between September 22nd and 28th is the week of Selfish Sewing that I discovered over at Imaginegnats blog. It is an interesting concept encouraging us, sewing enthusiasts, to sew for ourselves. To put aside all the projects for kids, friends, your boss and husband… and enjoy your “me” time with your sewing machine. Well, I can’t complain, since I do sew only for myself, but there is one things that I could not find any time for. My guilty pleasure is: I love sewing and creating out of scraps. It stretched your creativity, it gives you a certain amount of challenge and it is very difficult to sew a garment out of scraps. I love a good challenge, and I believe that so do You. So, this week for Selfish Sewing marathon I created a CapPucCino top out of 4 different fabrics. Let’s see how it came out!
By accepting scrap challenge I could not even think that I will be working with bits and pieces of fabric so small, that I need to sew it together to actually have a fabric to work with. You can be a witness of it by looking at the photo that says “ZigZag”! Satin was a bit puckering so I did topstitching on all seams, including darts. It can be worn as a very casual piece with a pair of jeans and converse OR dress it up like I did: with some animal print heels and pearl necklace! Enjoy!
