Farmgirl Fashion - Tops 2012


The weather is getting hot and I wanted some new tops this year, I actually wore out a couple of the ones I made last year! :) You can see my 2011 Farmgirl Tops here. I just love, love, love this pattern! It is New Look #6356 by Simplicity. It is so quick and easy, has four necklines, two scooped versions, a v-neck and a square neck. You can also make it with sleeves or sleeveless. The pattern calls for a zipper but with the necklines I use, it isn't necessary which makes it even easier! The top with the flags has the square neck and the bright yellow one the v-neck. I have a total of $6 invested in these six tops. Most of this material I already had, people keep giving me the material they don't want, but I bought the bright yellow and the green/turquoise for $1.50 per yard down to the Wal-Mart. Not bad, huh?!? :)
Linking up with Lisa and Nancy for Rural Thursday and Deb and Heidi for Farmgirl Friday.

Not too shabby for $1 ea.-- on average!

I admire your sewing and fashion savvy. I don't sew! I should.
I go through my tops...like crazy.

What a great resource - thank you, Candy! I will see if I can find that pattern. I love the idea of whipping up a few tops for next to nothing - it warms my frugal little heart....

Just think - even at Goodwill tops run 3.50 a piece!!

Nancy said...

That is exactly my style too! Great job, Candy!

Excellent! I will be making some more like this myself after school's out. I love my new sewing machine!

This looks like something I would wear too. What type of material did you use? I need to learn how to sew, and alter. I'm shorter so normally the armpits hang down too low and the shirt fits funny. I'll look this pattern up, I like it, especially the V neck.

Cute... I really like the 3rd one from the front. I think it so cool you know how to do this. Good job. Wish I did, maybe one day.

Those are so cute! I haven't had time to sew my own clothes in years, but I used to all the time.

Those are cute! Nice to be able to make them yourself...saving some serious bucks!

I like tops instead of T-shirts too! And these are just wonderful! How great that you didn't have to invest a lot of money in them, and that they are easy to make. So colorful & cute!

Wonderful tops - what type of material are they made from? I have tons of fabric and love to sew but I never seem to have the extra time. Last time I made clothes for me what I did was cut out seven skirts, same pattern and just did like an assembly line. In one evening I had skirts for a full week... Love your work.
