Issie Top Collection

So, I’m hopping on the Issie Top Tour Bus today along with two lovely ladies from Belgium With love by Eva and Stannel and I really don’t even know where to begin!  Maybe its best to start at the beginning?  That will take us all the way back to 2014.  Way back then I made the Little Betty Top by Sewpony and I even wrote a little blog post on it here.  I’ll show you a little preview…

Hera

Maybe you remember that a few weeks ago I posted a couple of summer tops I tested for Wardrobe by me, The Summer Breeze and The Summer Tulip.  Guess what, there is a third sister and her name is Hera.  But hold on it gets even better, YOU can get her for free!  That’s right $0.00!  All you have to do is sign up for the newsletter. 

Hera is a peplum top designed for light weight woven fabric.  Well, you know how rules are meant to be broken?  That’s what a few of us testers have been up to lately.
