It has felt like spring around here the past couple of days, I'd say few, but that would be a lie. We woke up to several inches of snow on Friday. Sunday and Monday though, were beautiful. It seems that every time the seasons change I realize that my wardrobe situation is in pretty sad shape. Last year at this time I was filling out my maternity clothes. So, to give myself another warm weather option, I made myself a top. The funny thing is, that this totally could have been a first or second trimester maternity top. Don't you worry your pretty little head, I'm not pregnant.
The top has two layers of knit fabric. The top layer is a thin single knit, and is a lovely shade or peachy pink. The bottom layer is a cream interlock knit. I layered the peachy one on top, and added several pieces of cream lace around the neckline, hem, and above the bust.
The back has a simple little pearl closure. The top is really comfortable, and the cap sleeves will be great for summer as well.
I almost turned the top into a dress, but I don't wear dresses much during the week, and I thought that it would be a bit too casual for church. I'm also afraid that it looks a bit like a nightgown...oh well, it's comfortable, it's new, and I like it just fine.
