Day 131: Honey Mustard Top

Day 132: Stenographer Jacket
Day 130: Jumpsuit Dress

Today’s top came to me in a big bag ‘o stuff from the delightful Susan Lenz (a completely kick-ass fiber artist!)

Day 131: Honey Mustard Top 2
I'm not quite sure what this pose is supposed to be...

You’re looking at an 80’s-tastic raw silk top.  The fabric is fabu, and I love that pocket!  With a bit of tweaking, it’ll look just like some of the tops at Urban Outfitters.  🙂

All this top really needs is a good take-in.  I laid it out on my awesome work table and pinned the sides (even the sleeves)…about 2″.

Then, I ran each side under the needle.

Stitchin' right along...

Here’s what it looks like now that it’s been taken in…before I cut off the extra fabric.  I sewed it with a bright red thread.  I hope you can see it.  🙂

Can you see it?

After the extra material was trimmed away, my new top was ready for a day at work, followed by an evening learning about Video Game Design!  🙂

Day 131: Honey Mustard Top 6
I'm still pretty mystified! 🙂

The Columbia Design League put together such a great panel discussion with some amazingly talented game designers from around the country…including my friend JJ (who is just awesome sauce!).  🙂  I didn’t know a thing about this subject before attending this event, and I was really amazed and impressed with how many incredibly specialized people it takes to put together a good game nowadays.  🙂

They even had snacks!
