Sweet Verbena: Simple Bow Tie Top

I found this tutorial, the Simple Bow Tie Top over at Sweet Verbena. I loved it the moment I saw it and just had to make it. I had everything on hand except some fabric for the straps which also make the bow.

It was so simple to follow and to make, I now want to make a dress the same way. When I went to Illinois, I found some fabric for .50 cents a yard!! I only bought 4 yards but I should have probably bought the whole bolt. Oh well, I have 3 yards to make something with. So back to my point, Alexandria my brothers girlfriend sewed when she was in 4 - H and she happen to have her machine handy. So, with me walking her through every step she made one too, with the .50 cent fabric I found.

I really think this is a good sewing project if you are just starting out or just getting back into sewing. Check out all of Katy's other tutorials, she does a wonderful job on explaining and what she comes up with just amazes me! I have this top on my list to make, have all the supplies ready, just need to make it.
