One of my goals for this year was to sew more for myself. I've "experimented" in sewing for myself before. Meaning I've sewn stuff, without patterns, and it was always pretty much a failure. I've made a few skirts that turned out ok, but just... ok. So I was VERY excited when Kate came out with the Zippy Top pattern!
It was pretty much like she looked inside my head, read my thoughts, and created this pattern! With an added bonus... the zipper! No joke, I had two shirts that I purchased at a store last year, wore them to death, and then shrunk them in the dryer. *Sigh* I loved those shirts, but I had a few complaints. They were too short, and the necklines were too big, they kept slipping off of my shoulders and I was forever pulling them up to hide my bra straps. So I had thought, well, I'll just cut one of them up and create a pattern from them with a few modifications... Enter in the Zippy Top, all the work is done for me! Yes PLEASE!!
