Simplicity 1198 Knit assymetrical top & a Trip to Fine Fabrics in Atlanta

I whipped up this cute little top using animal print knit fabric I've had in my stash a good while. I'd been looking for the perfect pattern for this fabric and found it with Simplicy 1198 view E. I LOVE to wear leggings so this was a cute shirt to go with a pair. Very easy top to make. I actually lengthened it about 4" after reading other sewer's reviews. I'm short-waisted so I needed my top to be long enough. Here are a few pics. Sorry they are the WORST! That was a busy day but at least I looked cute in the process LOL!

 (Forgive the blurry pic. Here's how I styled the top. Had a cute jacket and denim leggings I made long ago and paired it with tall brown boots. I'm a very unfussy dresser so my aim is always effortless and cute! 


 (I like the side drape. It's a cute detail)

(Back view---you can see the colors a little better. They are fab. I have such an obsession with animal prints!)


I was in Atlanta for a wedding so I took advantage of a Fine Fabrics trip. Next Month is our annual Father and Daughter Banquet so I picked up some fabric---will divulge deets soon.  If you've never been you NEED to go. I go anytime I'm in Atlanta.

 (I love seeing this sign)

 (There are SOOOOO many rows of fabric. The prices are a steal! Not surprisingly I went to only get the things I needed which wasn't much. I don't have an interests in collecting fabric anymore---it's liberating! I already have a big stash. I use to collect fabric because finding it on sale was few and far in between. Don't need to do that anymore. I'm becoming more of a minimalist everyday:)


(Being silly)

  8. Ok i must have done something wrong. My #10 piece(back) fell in the opposite direction of step #6. How did that happen? Did anyone experience that?

  9. I agree, very cute indeed! I love the way you styled it too! Thanks for the tip on the fabric store! I'm always looking for fabric stores when I visit to different cities. I hope on my next trip to Atlanta...I can give you advanced notice and maybe we can get together for a fabric shopping meetup!
