I’m delighted to begin blogging about my sewing adventures. I’ve been a beginning sewer for about 40 years and this first post is inspired by the first make in a long time that seems to have worked out. Many thanks to the Maya Top by Marilla Walker for getting my confidence up. Thanks also to Meg at Cookin’ and Craftin’ for the many Maya examples on your blog. Mine is also made of a cotton batik – and like Joni at Randomly Happy, I chose to draft a size that was kind of big. But after taking in the sides a bit I’m very happy.
Yes, its boxy. No I didn’t iron it (or clip the threads yet). Yes its hanging from a giant hops vine. Yes, I’m going out for a beer after I post this (one of the reasons why I need to wear boxy tops…)
Thanks for visiting! Look for more Maya’s soon. Maybe one like this from the Makery?
