Saturday happenings and Vogue 8821

Feeling myself right now, ijs lol! 9months being pregnant
has that effect on a person lol...
   I told y'all I've been productive, right? One would think that with a newborn and two boys that life would be no more, right? WRONG!!! Y'all, I am still getting my life and maintaining as normal, as that's the only way to stay normal, I think.. My creative, sewing juices are through the roof, and I'm not complaining one bit. I even stopped by my local Hancock's for the new fall Vogue patterns. But, I'll talk about them a wee bit later, let's get back to this top shall we!   
Vogue 8821
   I fell hard for this top when I seen Kelly's version, and knew I had to have one myself. It took me a minute to get to it. I mean with carrying life and all for nine whole long months (insert eye roll from my husband) lol! This top was ridiculously easy on the ease factor, which was a major score for me.
I believe the pattern for view A, the view I made has three pieces, yass! I used a new to me fabric, a Rayon Challis from I will say not one of my favorite fabrics to work with, but maybe one of my favorites to wear, especially in this Texas heat!

  I didn't make any alterations to the top, but should I make this top again and I shall! Then I will lengthen the front an inch, just my personal preference, not really trying to show off my tiger stripes, but dang it I earned them lol!  For reference I'm 5'7 and have a long torso. I also sewed the back straight up the middle, and I didn't find this to be too tight.. So, if you don't own this pattern and this is your style, grab this one because it's such a stylish top.. 

 Well, I hope you ladies are enjoying your weekend and getting plenty of sewing in! I'm off to get my sewing plans together for fall.. Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
