    1. Thank you Alethia! Sometimes I get so involved in simple makes, but with this style I just want to get that button down tab technique down, and really - I need simple things for work.

  2. Hi Faye! I think I needed to see something like this to make me want to give it a go. Lovely top

    1. Please do give it a go Merche. As long as I have been sewing there are still so very many techniques that I don't feel comfortable with and I do so love to learn new things.
      So nice to hear from you and see you blog again - I have truly missed you!!!

  9. Very nice! I will have to move this pattern up in the sewing queue. It will be spring someday around here and I'll need a lighter weight informal shirt.

  10. You used such fun prints for your Henley tops. They look great. I like the style, but the placket always makes me think twice about sewing it.
