Hello lovely people!!! Happy
For the mothers stateside, I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. It really needs to be a day or rest and relaxation for a lot of you:) I celebrated the UK/Nigerian Mother’s Day instead this year since I saw my mum around that time.
We didn’t do anything major at church. Instead they celebrated the mums last week so that families could do what they wanted this weekend. I ended up hanging out with a few friends at the beach where I tossed a football around. Yes, me, tossing a football. I usually flee from (un)identified flying objects of any sort but I’m working on it. I’ll show you a photo if (when) I get one:) In the meantime, this is the view leaving the beach. The perks of living in LA I guess:)
But that’s not the point of this post 🙂 The point is what did I wear on Sunday aka what was my #sundayFlow, lol. A few Sundays ago , I wore a keyhole ladybug buba and iro to church and said the “buba” was inspired by a top I had sketched to make. Well I finally finished and wore that top. I was pretty much done weeks ago, just needed to finish the bias binding but I got sidetracked by some other projects:)
I love this top! You can’t see the detail from this far but the outer fabric is a crisp pinstriped silk that I purchased last year at The Fabric Store LA.
Plus I wanted to top to be reversible even though I don’t really plan to wear it reversed. I’d probably redo the binding with a hand-finish in that case. It looks fine, I just prefer that look on the outside of a garment.
Et voila! Fun times. It was relatively quick to make after all the time spent perfecting the pattern. It’s flattering and comfortable and I like how the crisp fabric looks dressy and structured, kind of like a dense organza.
Happy Hump Day!
