Cotton Candy Pink Top, New Look 6648:)

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the Nations." Jeremiah 1:5

-The Lord God to the prophet Jeremiah

    The subject of my latest blog post, is this cotton-candy coloured top, by New Look pattern 6648. I actually made it last year when I was newly pregnant. I couldn't wear it for very long, but now that baby #2 has arrived, I can. This is baby Jonathan, a little over two weeks old now:) My review on PatternReview.com here.

    I will be making this pattern up again soon I think! Maybe view C next. Very easy and a fast make. I added a cowl to view A. I opted to just do a waistband without the gathering since I made this top with limited yardage. Plus the fabric is a bit too heavy for gathering.

    The fabric is some kind of polyester knit. Feels similar to terrycloth on the right side. I received  it free from a relative. I love pink!:)

  I haven't blogged since February but I do have a bunch of projects on the go! I started probably 7 in the past couple of months. A few knit skirts (Ina Skirt from PatternReview.com) and some dresses for the warmer weather. Once I get closer to my pre-baby weight, I'll finish them. I figured it would be good to get a head start since it'll be more challenging to get sewing done with two babies to take care of:)

   I'd like to make a few tops, including another Renfrew (non-maternity this time:) since I'll be nursing for a while.

Til next time!:)
