A new top for me - reward for the 85 Quilty Pants!

This fabric has been tempting me on my sewing table for the past few weeks during Quilty-Pant-Fest! It's a Denyse Schmidt print from the Chicopee collection, kind of like a reproduction 1940s print. I used a favourite Simplicity pattern 3835 that I've made (here, here, here here and here. It was super quick, under an hour, to sew up. I also like this photo for how it shows my sewing room... late at night... after making quilty pant pair number 86 just in time for a special birthday boy. I timed myself on those pants - 22 minutes. Can you say sweat shop?!
