My next sewing project is going to be the Sis Boom Devon Peasant Top. It is touted to be a very beginner-friendly project and that is exactly what I need. There are many options for this pattern… I am planning to do a hip-length top with full basic (rather than bell) sleeves.
Are you ready to see the fabric I’ve chosen? It’s kind of crazy, I know. I *like* crazy 😀 Plus, as my 5-year old daughter and I were looking online at fabric, she pointed to this one and exclaimed “That one looks like Strega Nona.” You know what… it totally does! Heehee. I love it! Okay, so here it is…
It is Alexander Henry’s ‘Eden Chain’ in Ochre. I really do love it. The only issue is that when purchasing fabric online, it is very difficult for me to visualize the scale of the print. I thought that this one would be larger, but it is smaller by maybe 50%. That’s okay, though. I am still pretty excited to make my ‘Strega Nona’ peasant top out of it!
So, that’s my plan! What’s your next project (sewing or otherwise)? I’d love to hear!
