Hi Darlings! TGIF. I woke up with a headache this morning after going to bed without drinking coffee, if you don’t already know I drink coffee before bed because it relaxes I know it sounds nuts but it’s true. The hubby and I will make a cup of joe and sit on the bed watching TV and sipping our coffee, we talk; laugh and then we…….go to sleep 😉

Last night however we had dinner with Chastidy and her boyfriend, and when we got home, I crashed hard! I had only had 3.5hrs of sleep the night before so I couldn’t wait to hit the bed. Since I did not drink my coffee I woke up with a headache (Yes, fully aware of caffeine addiction) #ineedhelp lol

Since there is not rest for the weary, I needed to get up and at it today with a long list of to-do’s, so I am working a very colorful and happy mood inducing DIY top with jeans. I also wanted to mention that I am now going to be suggesting a flat shoe option (below) with my looks for my darlings who don’t wear heels. xoxo



DIY Top Pattern V8977 HERE / Fabric HERE / Steve Madden Heels (option) HERE or HERE / Aldo Clutch / Flat Shoe Option HERE and HERE


Pattern Description: V8977 View C Very loose-fitting top has front pleats, shaped hemline, wrong side shows on back hemline, and back button

Pattern Sizing:  I cut the x-small (it is very loose fitting and has a ton of ease)

Fabric Used: Rayon found HERE Use code MIMI10 for 10% off

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes I think it does.

Were the instructions easy to follow? This is such a great pull over top to make. It is fast and easy to make. The buttons are sewn on so there are no actual buttonholes needed.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the flowy look, the back, and the buttons.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any.

Would you sew it again? Yes I see a few more in my future 😉

Would you recommend it to others? Yes!
