Sew & Tell Saturday # 3

Welcome to Sew & Tell Saturday! I hope those of you in the US had a nice Thanksgiving holiday yesterday. I know I did! My mom did most of the cooking and her turkey was soooo good! I spent a quiet day with just my husband, my mom and my kids. I tried to stay away from the madness of Black Friday but found myself at the mall this evening after all to buy my son a present for his 18th birthday tomorrow and ended by buying Christmas gifts for the girls too! 
BTW I have a giveaway posted from yesterday > I’m giving away a Burdastyle pattern magazine. You can click the Giveaway photo on the sidebar to see the post. 
Below are some featured projects from the link up last week. 
I adore this beautiful robot print baby dress made from a 1950′ pattern at The Teacup Dinosaur
A beautiful gown for a gala made by the elegant Laura Mae from Lilacs and Lace. You may have seen her on Burdastyle last week. She was the featured member.
I love this pillow made from a vintage tea towel from 1972 from Lets Go Fly A Kite
So funky!
Anna from A Few Threads Loose shared her cute tartan bra from her  bra sew-a long she shares at her blog.
Here is a fun upcycled project. A knit dress made from a Batman sheet at Cation Designs!
And here is what I made this week:
The weekly challenge The Sew Weekly  was to redo a pattern you have made before. This was the third time I used Burda 7678 for this top. It’s such a simple style and really easy to modify. This time I left off the wide waistband since my pants already have one. The knit pants are from the Burdastyle July issue. They are slightly like harem pants. But I don’t think the two pieces look that great together. Too much baggygoing on! I think the pants need a slimmer fitting top.

Here is the top by itself. I think I like it better with something slimmer fitting on the bottom.
