figgy's ayashe pattern

So...I'd actually kind of forgotten that I needed to take photos of the Figgy's Ayashe top I made a few months ago.  I kept hoping I'd get the skirt done first but that hasn't happened just yet. Unfortunately, because I didn't have tons of fabric, I ended up making the top a size smaller than the kiddo really needed. I only had enough for a size 2/3 and while it fits now, it won't for much longer. When I saw Anna's post sharing the Ayashe outfits she made for her girls I was reminded I needed to whip the camera out before the top I made was outgrown.

I really, really love how this turned out! All the little details in the pattern add up to a 'store bought' looking garment. It was challenging for me as I've generally stuck to super simple patterns when it comes to sewing clothing but I learned lots during this project and look forward to making a short sleeved summer version. The pattern includes several different options which I think is cool.





*fabric: Liberty of London {voile, I'm guessing} which my friend Lyann brought back from a trip to England.

*instead of threading elastic through casings for the sleeves, I just sewed a few rows of elastic thread.


Anyone working on any fun projects at the moment? Me, I'm still trying to get my stuff together for taxes. Schedule C, I hate you. I am squeezing a bit of sewing in here and there: working on one of these camera pouches for my mum and just got some fabric in the mail to make sofa throw pillow covers.
