Easy Top for You to Make

Hi De Ho!

Just stopping by to share what I made yesterday. It was just the doglets, kitten and I here listening to Nat King Cole, what more could inspire?

Please allow me to share this pattern with you that was 99 cents on sale at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago. For 99 cents you really can't go wrong right? I can afford to mess those up and not cry over spilled milk so to speak.

This is the pattern: McCall's M5357
I put the v-necked short sleeved top together in a navy cotton lawn cloth. I had been looking for a navy top, a simple cap sleeved top and could find none to go with this skirt from Coldwater Creek: Pretty Blue Skirt

I ordered this skirt last month when they were offering free shipping with a good percentage off of the already marked down price. That's the way to do it if you ask me. : )

For my top, I made the sleeves a bit shorter cutting off the little slit doodle-dandy on the sleeves. I really like the way this top came out, no setting sleeves either. Yippee! I will wear the top with the pretty blue skirt with a wide belt thrown around the top. Now how's that for easy-breezy fashionable sweetness?

Here's a pic I think you all might enjoy, it's something I randomly took one evening last week. Hubs and I had taken a nice walk on our property, see my shoes? I bought them from the animal rescue site, not too shabby. In the pic you'll see some P.J. clad daughters and a paper plate on the floor. This photo just speaks life at our house on many an eve. The plate is from our doglets, I feed them on paper plates, that is one of my mini-maids. I don't have a real maid so I treat myself to little things like feeding our dogs on paper plates to avoid a rather yucky clean up from canned dog food. After supper who needs more stuff to clean? Hubs had been helping me load pics from my camera on our pc on his lap there...

Here is the living room shot:
