I was finally at a point where I was ready to place an order with Girl Charlee. They have so many amazing fabrics, it was so hard to make my decisions. But, I needed a vision for each fabric before I placed my order. I came across this mustard stripped knit fabric, and knew I needed a top made from it. I used the same pattern I used on my Abstract Sweater.
I continue to forget that I am not the size I once was, when I begin cutting my fabric. I keep forgetting to take in account my thicker waistline, my tummy pudge, and my thicker arms. I just have my pre-second baby weight measurements memorized. I also keep avoiding taking current measurements.
Because of this, the top doesn't fit as comfortably as would like it to. It actually makes me a little self conscience about my middle area. I guess this just means I have to work really hard if I want to wear any of my clothes again and feel comfortable.
I am really in love with this top and its fabric. I paired it with Old Navy boyfriend jeans, Old Navy belt, a Modcloth necklace, and the sandals were a gift.
Stripes are my favorite.
