Happy Monday ladies! I told you I would be back this week and I am happy to be back! I mentioned in my last post that I found a new found passion, and sewing is definitely it. After retiring from professional figure skating as a show skater almost 9 years ago, I was really lost as I devoted 15 years to a sport I loved so much. I really wanted to eventually find something non-strenous on my body that could fulfill my creative side. Sewing is it, and I am so grateful that I found something I really love doing again in my life. For those of you who will remain followers and in touch with me, even though I may not be posting more than twice a week, I thank you so much for your support. I can now get back to this blog a bit and get back to your blogs for a visit to catch up. :)
Below is my first real project I did and I am so pleased with the results. I really wanted to make a boxy top for winter while it is still cold and yucky and I like the lighter shades in this plaid print. I also didn't have enough plaid print to make the full shirt, so I added a solid shade of gray in the back. I love the two toned look and of course am open for your thoughts as well.
1. The great thing about boxy tops is they work for most body types. They look great with skinny pants and fitted pencil skirts.
2. Layering is easy with them as you can throw on a fitted shirt underneath for extra warmth in the Winter. For Summer, a sleeveless boxy top looks amazing with a short skirt or a pair of pencil ankle pants.
