My next project begins! The two print pants shown in the last post both will work well with a natural colored linen top. At first I was thinking the third iteration of TNT Simplicity 2192, a Cynthia Rowley design, maybe with some hemstitching. But today found me in town buying my fabric for this top all while JAs was having a 99 cent pattern sale on Simplicities. I ran back to check the yardage on 2192 and of course got sucked into looking at the catalog. This new Cynthia Rowley design, Simplicity 1783, jumped right out at me. I think it is quite interesting and hope it also becomes a TNT. Some designers just click with us, don't they? And some never work which you know full well if you've been reading this blog for a while.
At this point everything is cut out and marked and I hope to get sewing after dinner tonight. This top will be very plain in this fabric and I am thinking how I might jazz it up, but not jazz it up so that it detracts from the pants which make a big statement with their prints. We'll see how this works out, maybe something with the bias neckline or a lot of topstitching or such. I feel some samples coming on!
So this top has to get done before I go back to work so I can wear my print pants. I am just lovin' those print pants. They even have names. There's the "Boho" for the floral denim pair and then there's "Inkspot" for the mottled black and beige pair. Sometimes fabric just cries out for a name...........Bunny
