Last week I shared how cute the girls in How I Met Your Mother dress, and how despite their huuuuuge Hollywood budgets and $600 blouses, they also mix in plenty of Anthropologie! Shortly after I wrote that post I saw another Anthro top in the episode last week, Season 5 episode 20, I think.
See Lily, in the far right?
And here's the patchwork top I mentioned last week... it's not from Anthro and I can't find online where it is from, but I thought it was cool to see a non-hippie, non-90's version of a multi-fabric cottony top!
April is Stash Bust Month from Dollar Store Crafts!
So, I dug around my "Small pieces" and "Old project scraps" drawers for fabrics similar to those that make up Lily's top. I was only partially successful. I love the pretty blue and pink floral, and unfortunately had nothing similar--well, same with the cute pink/white with flowers. I really think of the top I came up with as an experiment more than anything! I'm not too pleased with it but I learned quite a lot doing it since I drafted the pattern as I went.
Here it is, a top made of scraps!
