This week I have been working on a few casual dolman sleeved tops for myself and Isabelle so I am finding myself drawn to tops.
Today’s features are all tops.
I posted awhile back about how I still say “blouse” but most everyone now says”top.
I was actually told the word blouse was rather old-fashioned.
I guess that’s just how I roll.
The thought occurred to me that a blouse is usually a little more dressy, made of silk or something, and a top is definitely more casual, like a t shirt.
What do you think?
Take this chiffon tee Cindy from Cation Designs designed herself and posted this week. The fabric would definitely be considered blouse material but the style is casual putting it in the top camp. I love the contrast!
Paunnet made this pretty blouse from a pattern company I have just heard about from her blog, called Deer & Doe. Deer & Doe are a French pattern company with some very chic patterns. I would say the Peter Pan collar and more dressy cotton shirting would classify this as a blouse! I love the pictures on her blog, taken in the Italian countryside. They make me miss those six months when I studied Italian in Florence.
This little top by Buzzmills has a cute squirrel applique. So cute!
On the crafty sewing front, these adorable pincushion by The Thinking Closet caught my eye.
I have yet to make a pincushion. Probably because I use one of those big magnet pin holders out of convenience. But one of these might just change my mind.
So let’s see what you have been working on!
