Weekend easy

Spent Saturday at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. That morning I whipped up an easy little tee with Butterick 5948, inspired by the boxy, cropped top look.

This is a pattern that is probably overlooked a whole lot, but is very cool and practical. Not to mention EASY. It's all straight lines, no curves, gathers, darts or easing. Anyone insterested in sewing should look into the "boring" patterns to learn on.

I really wasn't in the mood to take pics, it was hot, smelly and humid as fish grease in there! Get it?! - ha-ha!!

Here are the ones that show the top pretty goood. *Ignore the boo-boo faces.

The top is cropped,  but just long enough to cover "that area." I made sure not to raise my arms tho, lol...


I was fussing about something here, but aside from that,
Why was he scared of EVERYTHING!!??!?!  Dude had me & Dad carrying him around THE WHOLE TIME. I gotta get him out more, lol!

Quick and easy works! Nice top. I enjoy Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Who was most tired at the end of the aquarium visit - parents or the little cutie?
