Seeing Orange

So, it's not exactly this (from Anthropologie):

...but I think it's close enough. I haven't had a lot of time to sew lately but on Sunday I did manage to find a few free hours to make this top.

I used Amy Butler's Cabo Halter pattern. I highly recommend this pattern. This was probably the easiest top I've made so far. The instructions were very clear and I made the whole thing in about three hours. I'll be making a few more of these for the summer.

Looking at this picture makes me want to redo our back patio. We're renters though, and I really don't see any point in throwing money into someone else's property. Oh, but if it were mine...the possibilities!


  1. i can see why you like the anthropologie top but i think yours is better and more flattering. the anthro one looks like it would be too bulky/flared around the waist and hips. good job!

  2. Cute Top! I have this pattern and fabric for the Cabo Halter, but haven't made it yet.

  3. It may not be Anthropologie, but it looks amazing!


I love hearing from my readers - thanks for leaving a comment!
