Where did the time go?

Summer vacation is almost over and I feel very unaccomplished.  At the beginning of break I thought that I would have a ton of clothing sewn but that was far from what actually happened.  I'm getting myself mentally prepped for a great fall though.  So here's to hoping for lots more to post about.  

I made my first ever EYMM pattern today.  It was easy peasy and my daughter and I both love it.  I love it so much that I am going to make myself the women's version of this top.

This is the Carlie Dolman Top with the high-lo cut.  My daughter said it's super comfy which is something she doesn't usually tell me when I make things for her.  The fabric is a lightweight sweater knit that I found at Joann Fabrics.  
Make sure you check out EYMM (Everything Your Mama Made & More) because there's some great patterns to use.  The Carlie's was written well and I had no trouble following along.  The tips for sewing with knits were nice too.

Oh, and a shoutout to Cookie Crumbs Couture for the chunky necklace.  My daughter loves the big beads!


  1. So cute! I haven't tried EYMM yet, but I need to add this to my wish list!

    1. You should definitely add it to your wish list. I bought the bundle so I can make this top for me and G for forever! The size ranges are amazing, plus there are four different variations to the shirt.
