Day 191: Scrap Bustin’ Top

Day 192: A kool koozie! :)
Day 190: Leopard Garden Top

All this refashioning has left me with a bunch of scraps!  Most of them are the cut off bottoms of dresses, like this one from Day 182:

Hey Guys! Remember me?

Scraps are pretty terrific.  There are all sorts of fun projects you can do to use them up.  I loved the pattern on this fabric, and decided to turn that scrap into a pretty drapey top!  :)

First, I put it on my dress form and pinned it on each side where I wanted the neck hole to be.

Dress Forms are Awesome! :)

Then, I tacked the pinned parts down with a few quick stitches.

Tack it down!

This could also be done by hand really quickly, too.  :)

Now I have a pretty new top…perfect for a gorgeous 70 degree SC winter day! :)  And no…this is not typical winter weather for us, but I’m definitely not complaining!

Keepin it real in teal! :)

My new top was fine for the day, but by the time it was dark, temps plummeted into the “really cold” region.  Not to worry!  I made a nice cuppa green tea, and cozied up for a quiet night in with the Fella.  :)

Check it out! My fiestaware matches my new top! :)

Cheers, friends!  I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!
