Progress on the Marion Top

After about 5 different mock ups I finally got one that I liked. I was originally going to do just a drawstring peasant top but then decided I wanted to do the whole sha-bang. The shirt I have now is much more accurate. I finished the mock up at the end of last month and made the pattern a week or so ago. The material I'm using is a white gauze from Jo-Ann's, and it's so perfect!

While I was tracing out the pattern, Doji thought it would make a nice bed. He love's it when I make my room a mess with my sewing projects!

I've got the shirt all sewn up with everything hemmed and right now I'm tracing out the embroidery, which there is a lot of!



That's it for now!

  1. Kudos for using that material and for making mock-ups! I thought about using gauze, but was concerned about it warping the embroidery design, since I had never embroidered or used gauze before!

    And it appears my design worked out for you?

  2. Thanks Janey! I've started the actual embroidery and it's working just fine. You're embroidery pattern was very, very helpful! Thank you for sharing it with me!
