I couldn't resist making another one of these tops, after finally breaking out the Simplicity 3835 pattern last week. It's such a quick and easy project, and you get a nice new piece of clothing within the hour, pretty much, so I'm finding it difficult not to turn all the fabric i own into tops like this.
A couple of weeks ago a friend gave me a big bag filled with batik-print cotton fabrics in bright colours, that she bought ten years ago on a trip to Africa, but never used for anything. This gauzy purple fabric was included in the bag- and I don't usually wear this colour but something about it appeals to me. Makes me think of summer, and chopping up eggplants for the barbeque.
A few other things:
- I added a new set of things to my shop this morning, including the purple embroidered shoes above.
- Tomorrow I plan to post a little pattern/instructions for making these patchwork balls.
