i really want to make this:

but i don’t want to follow a pattern.
or use all the fabric it calls for.
you see, it’s lined (as in twice the fabric, twice the work).
so it’s made really well, but that just sounds like way too much work for a shirt that will surely have otter pops dripped on it and snot wiped on it.
but it sure is pretty!
you may be wondering why i’m loving such a summery shirt right now.
it’s because fall is the most beautiful season here, and every year i forget it, until it sneaks up on me.
take today: it was probably high 80’s at least.
not a cloud in the sky.
so nice it makes me want to wear a shirt i will probably never make.

    I love that shirt too!
    But it's been chilly willy here in 'Bama, so no halter tops anymore this year for this gal. I've already busted out the long sleeve thermal shirts and jeans!
    Can you believe it?

    all of amy's patterns call for WAY more fabric than in necessary. hmmm… wonder why. because she is SHADY!!! love the top though. you could totally rig it up without a pattern and rock it all winter with a jean jacket. just saying.

    I'm extremely jealous of you and your 80 degree weather! They threatened snow next week. Ugh!

    Love the shirt though! :)

    I've made the pattern before and it runs WAY big plus it calls for way too much elastic in the back. That being said, it's really cute using Heather Bailey's big daisies:-) and makes for a great swimsuit cover-up.

    Hi Lindsey!

    I love that! I wish I could sew better than I do. A dress for the little sis? No problem. Something for me? Not so easy.

    I just wanted to say hello, and tell you how much I adore your posy pins. I saw them on (in)courage, and I knew I had to come by. I'm now following you! =)

    Have a blessed Wednesday!
