Sew Chaotically! - Another By Hand London, Polly Top

As a last 'remnant' (Ha! Ha! Sewing humor!!!) of Rosie's closet clean-out, she gave me a cotton gauze scarf she never wore, to use in some capacity as I desired.  When questioned, she said, "I don't know how.  But, I'm sure you can come up with something to do with it!!!"  

Well, it sat for a minute and I remembered this:  Sew Chaotically! - Tale of 2 tops - Polly and Sally???? 

The Polly top is great.  The curved front is a miracle of fitting without darts.  Not sure how it would do for those more fully endowed, but for those belonging to the Itty Bitty Titty Committee, it is lovely!!!  Oh!!!  Did I mention that the lovelies at By Hand London give it away for FREE??!!!
Check this out:  Please welcome the Polly Top sewing pattern! (Oh yes, and she's free).

So with the aforementioned scarf and a bit of gauze fabric left over from a top I made for Ruthie last year ~ I made this!!!

I fully lined the front with the yellow gauze....

....while leaving the back un-lined and employed bias binding for all finishes.

Isn't she the cutest????

I think Polly and Roo are a great combo!!!

And a lily, cause...well...pretty and matching!!!  Enjoy your Saturday and...Sew Chaotically! - les
