even more sewing

I've had this fabric for over a year - I was always waiting for the right pattern, then winter came, and it wasn't appropriate for the weather, so nothing ever came of it. (Not that a year marinating in stash is odd, I have fabric that is coming close to vintage status...) But I really loved this stuff - it's white cotton, with a black thread embroidery on it, and brown colour printed within the embroidery.
I finally decided on a pattern - my tried and true, gathered neck tunic that I love so much. I've made this in green linen already and wear it often through spring, summer and fall.
Sorry for the washed out picture - out weather has been on and off acceptable for picture taking, and this was taken on an off day.
I liked it so much, I took another linen/cotton blend I had sitting there, already washed and ready and whipped up another one.
Hey, I had new red shoes that needed something to go with them...
(Crappy office bathroom shot! Wrinkled top and blurry photo! But such a comfortable outfit!)

Such pretty fabrics and tops! I love them both but the orange/red one is especially eye catching and pretty. They look so comfortable too.

Both fantastic tops and I love how you paired the second one with the red shoes and black pants.

I relay like the length on these. I have a pair of pj pants I bought because they were very similar to the first print you showed. I adore them...

Love the top! Would like to know the pattern - might just be the one I've been waiting for. Can you post the details?
