Hot in the city (the heat, that is, not me!)

Forgive the tired, glazed look. It's been rather warm here the last few days, and our house is an oven, which makes it a little bit hard to get a decent nights sleep. At least I'm feeling cool and funky in my brand new top!

Geez, everybody is making them! I highly recommend this pattern - it doesn't use too much fabric, takes only a few hours, and is just challenging enough to save me from being bored. I've already got another cut out and ready to go, and plans for about 6 others swirling around the old noggin.

Project specs
Pattern - Simplicity 4589, Style F in size 6


  1. it's gorgeous, LOVE the fabric.

  2. That top is gorgeous and you look fab.

    How come the last time I saw a work from you, it was in a Sz 8 ?! Since Xmas you seem to be slimming, whereas all my clothes are decidedly tightening .. erg.

    Wow, it's gorgeous! And extra points if you've being sewing (or really doing anything beyond melting) in this heat....

  5. Oh, don't you look stunning! I always look so horrid and unstylish in summer. If I could only look that good.

    I love the top it looks great although I think you are showing off when you metioned it was a size 6!!!!!!!! man gone are those days.......

  9. Great top, I admire your patience to sew in such heat.

  10. Your top is so pretty! I'll have to make one for the summer....Hah, I had to double-take before I realised you are in Australia, for I live in England and no way could anyone be wearing a top like that now - !
