Wardrobe re-discoveries: Summer Top


There are certain parts of the wardrobes in my home that quite resemble black holes. Only with these, one can retrieve things back. Especially those that have been lying unfinished for a long, long time. This top in particular was left untouched for more than 6 years; can you believe this? Hard-core crafters know what I am talking about - hence I find solace in the fact.


I will leave the story for when it is finished. It involves a nightgown and a crazy girl's scissors. This is only a glimpse of the front part embroidery / cutwork that I embellished with beads. I tried to take a photo of it hung but it was horrible. Better pictures next time.


As I plan to dedicate the rest of the week to completing some of the ufos, there will be several sewing related posts. Stay tuned.

Do we have the same wardrobe?
Such a beautiful piece. Everytime I see cutwork I think of you.

I'm in the middle of a house moving and I perfectly know what it means to find out something you've never seen for years...
Waiting to read the complete story of this summer top!
