Hello everyone! I’m super happy to be back and with something amazing!
First off, move update. I am now in Ottawa! Ottawa is built on un-ceded Algonquin Anishinabe territory. We are getting settled and are mostly unpacked now but I haven’t been sewing too much in the past couple of months.

Helen’s Closet March top
I recently did a guest post on Helen’s Closet. Full disclosure I did receive the pattern for free and received compensation for my blog post. Click here to see the blog post on Helen’s Closet.
I made two March tops, because I wanted to make sure it fit as I wanted first. It definitely fit as I wanted it.
I’m not going to duplicate the post since all the information is in there, but since I took bunches of pictures, I wanted to share more here!
Here is my first version:
I used a lovely printed rayon in a purple poppy print.
Here is my second version:
I made it with two colours of cotton linen and embroidered some details on the front panel:
At first, I created this whole under sea themed embroidery for it and haaaated it. I loved the embroidery so I will probably make something similar and hang it on the wall. I decided to go more simplistic for it and also save my hands a bit of effort. I chose pastel rainbow and used basic stitches for it. There are more details in the post.
Here are a bunch of pictures that I took but didn’t add to the guest post:
I also have a blooper reel:
When your remote isn’t working and you have to go back to your phone to see what the issue is with it.
These are definitely looks I give to strangers when they try to hit on me. LOL.
And finally, multiple pictures of my butt because I accidentally pressed the button on my remote too long and it took burst photos. Hhahah!
