I not only made a couple of tops out of linen, I bought some more fabric.
a beige linen with a black eyelet all over embroidery. This one still needs a hem, but it's a touch snug, so it's on hold for the moment.
Since I love the pattern, I adjusted for sizing around the bust and bicep and came back with this:
Love this. Green linen, gathered neckline, tunic length. Perfect with capris or slim jeans. And the colour perfectly matches a pair of my green flip flops!
So when Fabricland had a sale, I picked up a couple more lengths of linen:
a denim-y blue for Vogue 8500, a cross over front, asymmetrically hemmed tunic
And a grey/green watercolour print for another summer top at some point.
And then, because I couldn't resist it, this orange cotton with a sparkle sewn into it. I've tried to capture the sparkle here with my star filter. Suffice to say, it's very pretty.
There's more sewing in my future, but I need to confirm some stuff this weekend, and then I"ll tell you all about it!
