I’m a basics girl. If there’s anything that Me Made May has taught me, it’s that I gravitate towards easy sewing patterns that I can make again and again. The Ella Top  is that sewing pattern. Its relaxed fit and racerback design make it a top that you can easily dress or up down. Plus, it’s the perfect for layering.   I’ve sewn a few Ella Tops for the 2015 Summer Collection .

After living in Colorado for the past few years, I’ve developed a love/hate relationship with our 300 days of sunshine. My mood loves these warm, life-giving rays. My energy levels are off the charts. And yes, being able to hike all year round is pretty great. The weather here agrees with my soul.   But my wardrobe?
