Then the Top

While I was working on the jacket I happened to notice this remnant carelessly tossed near my work table. I really thought it was kinda ugly when I bought it but hey, it was cheap chiffon and it has randomly placed sequins for a little sparkle. Next to the jacket, it's a perfect match! This is made from Butterick 3385, probably no longer in print. I made a version for myself a couple years ago and it didn't fit right in the boobs so I'm hoping it will fit Vale better as she's got better (and younger!) proportions than mom.

FYI: My other daughter is Nicci so my label is NicciVale. Both girls don't sew, are not into fashion like I am but every time I sew a label into a garment, it's love energy.

Dad is still hanging out in our guest room and am currently looking for an apartment for him. Of course, I love him dearly but I need my house back. A girl has to have her space.
