Remember when I was all bent out of shape because my box of fabric was supposed to have arrived on my porch but it wasn’t on my porch? I also found out then that the double gauze I really wanted was sold out so I wasn’t getting yardage I was really hoping to get.

So, I decided to console myself and go fabric shopping. I went in search of fabric for my Hummingbird top since I already had two Hummingbird skirts. I didn’t know what I wanted so I just went browsing. I searched and found something that caught my attention and paired it with a lightweight dot burnout shirting.


Here’s what I did:


  • I cut view Blue with the dickie. I just love the fake shirt underneath look.
  • I cut the size 40 with the 3/4 sleeves.
  • I measured shoulder to waist and drew a line curving in that matched my waist measurement.
  • I then measured from my waist to my hip and drew that line to my hip measurement
  • I cut the 40 peplum

I really want to make this top with the bow Steph did or something fun like that to hold the fronts together. The sewalong is buzzing. It’s such a fun forum and the 30 minute a day approach is totally doable.

What do you think of my print?! I have more prints on the way. It feels oddly normal to buy prints. Thanks to everyone who has helped me along the path from solids-only to printland. It’s pretty here.
