Have you ever walked into a store
and said I wish I could copy that?
In the past month I have walked into my
favorite women's shop to just drool abit.
I love their stuff, but it is for skinny girls with
plenty of pocket money.
I looked at this one top, which cost about
$70. and I said I can do that.
Of course for some of you, you might not
know that for 25 years I worked as a professional
patternmaker in the apparel industry.
I came home and dug through my fabric stash
and there sat a piece of silk my husband bought
for me when he traveled to China many years ago.
He had been disappointed that I hadn't done anything with it.
So this week I finally took the time to make that top
I saw at the store. It is simple, but so fun to finally
just do what I am always thinking - be a copy cat.
The rewards have been fun!
