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...

I live just north of Toronto, in a lovely little town. Urban enough, but just the right amount of small town...
