Hey there! Welcome to my stop on the Golden Rippy Delilah Blog Tour!

Golden Rippy is a newer designer sharing their designs with the world! There are currently two patterns out. The Delilah (of which I’m sharing my version here) and the Dahlia which is the girl’s version of the Delilah. (So if you want to do the whole mommy and daughter matching thing you can!)
Read to the bottom to find out how to enter the giveaway!
The Delilah is a cute Dolman style top. I like these style tops, loose and flowy and help hide the mummy tummy but still flattering. I know horizontal stripes are maybe not the best but I loved the colours.
I sewed up the XL size and did a few modifications to fit it better on me. I cut the hip band in the size L since my hip measurements fell into lower end of that range. But then cut a few inches off the hip band length so it would be a little more snug on my hips. I also shortened the overall length by a couple inches cuz I was afraid it would be too
I’m so happy with how this turned out! It is the first project I’ve sewn for myself that turned out so well!! And I did pretty good with matching the stripes! yay!
This is a pretty fast sew. For me maybe about 2 hours. But part of that was stopping to check fit every so often. The next ones should go faster.
I’m already planning to make a few more. And next time I’ll use a plain knit so I can try out the embellishment options. My sister has also asked me to make her a top too! I call this a successful project!

A nice drapey knit that I bought locally! I think it would make a nice maxi length dress too 😉 (That was totally accidental. I thought the fabric looked familiar when I bought it and remembered where I’d seen it after it was sewn up!)
Both of her patterns are currently on sale so check them out!

I’m sewing up my stash this month! This counts as project #1 of stash sewing. I used approx. 2 yards of fabric from stash! Woot!
