With three kids and no family nearby, my husband and I don’t get to go out on date nights often. So when we get the chance, my first thought is almost always OHMYGOSH WHERE WILL WE EAT?? because I love food. 😉 Ok but seriously, I usually think “What am I going to wear???” first.
I found this burnout stretch velvet at JoAnn Fabrics and it was a no brainer. I love deep red, and this has just a teeny bit of shimmer to it. The top is a pretty easy sew and I love that M4M’s patterns are so easy to customize to my (weird postpartum) figure. It’s a dolman style, so no sleeve to inset. The long sleeve is super easy, the bottom is banded, and you don’t even have to do a true neckband–with the crossover, your neck binding stays in a continuous strip rather than a circle and is sewn into the side seam. The top can be worn with either the crossover V in the front, as I’ve styled it, or the scoop neck in the front, giving a nice deep V in the back. And I was successful–husband’s eyes lit up when he saw this top. 🙂
Ok…because it’s Valentine’s Day…I guess I can vamp it up a little. 🙂
Be sure to visit the other tours on the blog! There are many amazing Valentine’s Day date night options to drool over.
Can you really have too many bodysuits for your babies?
That’s a trick…
Have you put off learning to work with knits? Do you struggle with wavy hems…
