It's been really hard to photograph stuff this dreary June weather, so I got up especially early today to take advantage of the short-lived sunshine...and lovely it was too!
Anyway, if my original Grainline Studio experiments below could be referred to as the floral series...
...then today I have what can only be described as the 'abstract animal series' to share with you. I really hope my rather garish taste in jersey doesn't put you off these two patterns, because they really are so versatile and a joy to work with. Personally, I can't wait to make them up with some cotton voile or lawn as well!
What?!? I'm the first to admit my taste in prints can be somewhat questionable...but just look how nicely this hangs!
Once again I omitted the tiny pocket from the Tiny Pocket Tank and I also raised the front neckline a smidge, which is much more to my taste.
I love finishing off the neckline and armholes using Tasia's method outlined in her Renfrew. It's such a professional and neat finish.
I enjoy chilling in my roomy clothes - so comfy...bliss!
I don't know if you can tell, but the fit my new Scout Woven Tee is much better than the first. I was brave and cut out a whole size down all over this time (from a size 8 to a 6) and it has totally done the trick - I'm very pleased with the slightly 'snugger' fit.
This pattern has some lovely details like the softly gathered (or pleated in my lazy case) sleeves and the asymmetric hemline.
So that's enough on the garish jersey front. I do promise that I have something other than jersey and other than tops to show you soon...
Here's some gorgeous cotton prints I'm working with at the moment
And a dress I can't wait to show off - it is jersey mind you, but it's not a top! Small steps ;o)
So, how have you all been enjoying your weekends? Did you manage to get much stitching done?
