In my sewing frenzy before our vacation, I made some tops. Only one of which I can actually wear. I made two of these:
The first one was perfect - aside from it being far too snug. Daniel liked it. But I informed him that respectable, flighty girls did not wear shirts like that. So I made another slightly looser, which worked apart from running out of fabric, so it came out much shorter, and I then suffered from late '90's, midriff baring flashbacks, and that's no fun at all.
So then I made this shirt. Now I'm really not sure what caused me to pick up this fabric, aside from the price (it was $.75 for a whole bunch of it). It's very retro in a way that I'm not sure I want to be retro, but I decided before I messed up anymore fabric that I did really like, I would practice on this. The fit of this shirt came out perfect, and oddly enough, for not being super crazy about the fabric, I have skirts in the same blue, green, khaki and pink-y/coral colors and shoes in the yellow.
I guess it really isn't too much of a mystery as to why I picked it.
