I've been hitting up the fabric clearance racks at Hobby Lobby pretty regularly lately. It's really paid off--pre-cut lengths of fabric at nearly 50% off! And the best part is no waiting for someone to come cut it for you!
Anyway, I found about a yard of hot pink pre-ruffled fabric about a week ago. Total score!
Here's the super simple tube top I made myself. Just sewed a tube and put in a little casing for elastic at the top so I wouldn't have any wardrobe mishaps:
I think it will be a great beach top for our vacay next month. Maybe with a little cardi at nighttime?
The ruffle fabric was a lot easier to work with than I thought it would be. I made sure to use a ball-point needle and I was very careful that when I sewed the seams all the ruffles were going the same direction.
BEST PART--I made Kiki a matching jumper!
I'll be linking up here.
One last thing--please go vote for my entry in Me Sew Crazy's Pattern Remix Contest! It's the Upcycled Pillowcase Outfit that I made for Kiki a couple of months ago:
Of course, all the entries are fantastic, so just go vote for your fav--hopefully it's mine!
