The Black Wrap Top

It’s finally starting to feel like winter here in Southern California! Up until a couple weeks ago, I was still wearing sleeveless tops. But now that the temperature is dropping, I am realizing my lack of long sleeve tops.

Instead of adding the ties, I simply sewed up the side seams with the wrap part sewn in too. So it’s kinda a faux wrap top!

I wear black more than I like to admit, so I know I’ll be wearing this one ALL the time like I have with my perfect little black tee.

Oh yea, in case ya haven’t noticed, I cut my hair! Spontaneous decision, but I am quite liking the change!

Finished Project: Sew Over It Ultimate Wrap Dress

This is definitely THE ULTIMATE Wrap Dress!


I have been wanting to buy this pattern from Sew Over It since I used M6744 to make my purple silk wrap dress. I finally purchased it two weeks ago and I was so excited when I received a lovely pink package last week all the way from the UK.


The combination of the fabulously drafted pattern and the stretchy jersey make for an extremely comfortable dress! I made the whole dress using my serger, finishing the hem and facing with a coverstitch.
