Easy Empire-Waist Top

Well, maybe the Not-So-Easy Empire-Waist Top. I made this VERY cute top from Amy Butler's Little Stitches book. The projects in this book are rated 1 - 5...1 being the easiest and 5 the most difficult. This top had a rating of 4. Seems to go against the "easy" part of the name. I do a LOT of sewing and there were a couple of challenging parts but I'm happy with the project overall. Of course what would a shirt be without a hat and bloomers? The hat and bloomers came from the same book. The hat is really great. It has a stuffed butterfly in the front that is attatched with velcro. A built-in toy!

I have to say that I really like EVERY project in this book and I intend to make every one!
