Spring Top Week - Entry 1

Vintage Poetry in Motion by Sara
This is my first entry for Spring Top Week, hosted by Made By Rae.  I watched this competition go down last year and wished I was experienced enough and brave enough and creative enough to enter.  A year's passing has brought new skills and new bravery, so here I am entering!  yay me!

I've posted this top in the Flickr group here, but also wanted to show it accessorized as I would really wear it.
Flower by Lemon Tree Studio.  Belt by Goodwill.  :)

Here you can see the back of the cowl neck, pleated and sewn down to stand about 4" high.

This is my first try at a pattern from the book Twinkle Sews by Wenlan Chia (gift from my hubby for Christmas) and I'm excited to try more.  I've already got my eye on another I want to try in knit.


  1. Wow, beautiful!! What do you think of the rest of the book? I love your top...good lucky, I had no idea about that contest but don't have a top to enter, lol!!

  2. In general, the tops in the book seem sloppy and oversized to me. Wenlan's silhouettes aren't my favorite. In fact, I hadn't even thought to make this top until I saw someone else on flickr who had made it in fuschia knit and it looked amazing.
