When it comes time to actually select and sew a project, it is so hard. I have so many ideas and want to sew every pattern with every fabric out there! Selfish Sewing Week came along and my motto was to just jump in and do something I've been dreaming about. Ever since we got this amazing Octo fabric in (part of Tokyo Train Ride by Sarah Watts for Cotton + Steel), I have been wanting to make something amazing & fun that I would actually wear! I bounced back and forth from a skirt, to a dress and then ran across the Sailor Top pattern and it was over, I knew it would be perfect. I am so happy with the way it turned out! I happen to live in a very eccentric town, Eugene OR, and while I am not brave enough to rock a lot of bold and daring things, I had so much fun wearing this around town yesterday. Everywhere I went from local wineries to local pizza joints, someone commented on how fun and awesome it was. I cannot wait to get tons of wear out of it this summer, and who knows it may even make an appearance at Quilt Market this spring and our trip to Hawaii this summer!Read More On shawnahaynes's Blog
