Selfish Sewing

The deadline was yesterday. I procrastinated all last week and didn't make my spring top. So I sadly checked the blog this morning to see who won the contest and SURPRISE! the deadline was extended one more day. Apparently, I am not the only one who lives in the last minute. My real problem was that I couldn't settle on just one because my cabinet was stuffed with fabric and I have several vintage patterns that I was dying to try. I went with my initial pick... I finished five hours before the contest closed. The most embarrassing thing of the whole project was when I realized that I needed a photographer to take my Flickr picture. That's what sister-in-law's are for! They don't laugh when we put our hands on our hips and "model."

Presenting my selfishly-sewn, fully-lined, spring top, made by me and for me, completed in four hours. With a little help from Amy Butler (anna tunic pattern) and Anna Maria Horner (Free People fabric).

I have no idea what the prize is. I completed the first project for ME in two years...

I've already won!
