I always like to get myself a few new pieces of clothing each Spring. This year, no different. The only problem is: I can no longer browse through the teen/tween fashion isles to pick up some really cute shirts. Ah, what a confession to make: teen tops don’t fit any longer; I eye womens plus-size clothing these days. It’s really not just because I like a baggy look – I do like loose fitted clothing. But it’s mainly because I could shed a few pounds. And I will (with my awesome Fitbit). In the meanwhile, I am trying to be realistic. Which is why this top caught my eye. This is a fun Spring womens top to sew.
