Hey there Delilah. 😉
The Shaffer Sisters are hosting a Sew-abration of women this month. And I had to gracefully bow out in the middle of the month because our car completely died and I was scrambling around trying to figure out how to get hubs to work and kids to school. I didn’t have any time left to finish my project. But this top is exactly what I had in mind.
I found this awesome silver fabric from Joann fabrics a few months ago and knew exactly what I wanted it to be. So I set about making the pattern and graded it to the other sizes. I have a degree in Fashion Design and Production…and if you hear me repeating that a bunch of times it’s just because I’m so excited I finally get to put it to use! I’ve been full-time “mommy” for the past seven years to 4 kids, I didn’t have many opportunities to use my skills. And now that I’ve revisited my passion, it’s lit a fire inside me to continue designing and pushing forward.
And it just so happens that I’m a part of the May Aspiring Designers challenge!
The Delilah Top is the grown-up version of the Dahlia Top.
It’s a quick, easy sew and comes in sizes xxs to xl.The Delilah comes with two embellishment options. A big ol’ bow on your shoulder, or some fun blossoms on your chest. We want to draw some attention. Wink wink. But I don’t want my puppies to pop out of my neckline every time I have to bend over to wipe a nose, or pick up a toy that fell out of the stroller.
Perfect for breastfeeding moms! It’s nice and long and gives good coverage, especially when those puppies are obscenely big and don’t fit into regular tops. You know what I’m talking about. Oh, and it’s very forgiving with “the mommy tummy”. I have a 3 month old baby and after 4 kids my abs have gone into hibernation. I don’t need my tops to judge me. 😉
It also has two sleeve options with a short sleeve or half sleeve. Perfect for the summer and transitional days. Designed like a dolman or kimono sleeve, you don’t have to cut it out separately or set in the sleeves, it’s already attached!The Delilah is your go-to top to lounge around in, do your Netflix binge watching, take a nap and then suddenly remember you still have to feed that family of yours. Look cute and pulled together, whether you feel like it or not. Who says fashion can’t be comfy too?
Annemieke is modeling the new neckline. Isn’t she just a peach? 🙂
