Hi Everyone!
Well here is the fourth piece for this summer’s Handmade Wardrobe Fashion Show at The Tin Thimble. I finished this, oh, say, a month and a half ago, but as usual other things came up and I am just now finding time to photograph and post it! I sketched this top about a year ago, and when I found that gorgeous embroidered trim I knew it was just the inspiration I needed. The red fabric is a really great, medium weight 100% linen that I purchased from the local fabric store here in Arcata. I used a New Look juniors pattern for the basic concept and then changed things here and there. Note to self and others: these straps are not as simple as they seem to be! It took me at least 5 different tries to get the angle in the front correct.
