KnipMode 2010-02 / 19 Top finished.


I finished this top today and couldn't wait to show it to you. I'm so happy with it. It's the second time I used this pattern. The first top I made is a winner in my wardrobe. And now it has a twin!!  And there is still room for triplets, if you know what I mean, so who can tell what the future will bring.
The fabric is gorgeous. It's one of my Antwerp-purchases (the 'Vincent-fabric', remember?). It feels as soft as melted butter and has a lovely draping-quality. I just lóve working with jersey.

This top is very easy to make and it's a real quick project. That it took me a whole week to make has other reasons, like long days at the office and working at home in the evening till late. When I got up this morning I felt like a wreck and could have stayed in bed the whole day easily, but I chose not to and finished this project. And I'm glad I did. It really gave me back some of my energy.

I'm wearing my favourite piece of jewelry in the picture:  "Johnny Walker". Yeah, that's his name.

Isn't he just adorable? He comes with me almost every time I'm wearing something with a V-shaped neckline.










My next project could be this skirt. It's Burda 2010-09 / 106


I'ts been a while since I worked with a Burda-pattern and I'm looking forward to it.
I'll be making it in a grey gabardine and I'm going for the longer (B) version. It will make a great pair with my new top ánd my new black boots. I hope I'll have something to show you soon but I'm afraid the coming week won't be any better than the past one. Ah well, Que Sera, Sera.....

And now for something very, very unimportant....a.k.a. a parting shot:
These two clouds remind me of 2 cones of strawberry icecream, or in other words: of summer, though they are definitely telling us that fall is knocking on our door.



Have a great weekend everyone!

......................

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I know I live not far from a military airport and I do have experience with cargo planes and fighters crossing the sky above me but just moments ago a big cargo plane (or I think it was) flew SICKENING LOW over my house. I had my camera next to my laptop so I grabbed it and ran outside to take pictures. But they don't even begin to show how low it really was. Damn! I'm still shaking. 








(Ok....I'm cooled down a bit now......I guess this 'monster' has to take wing also, so I'm keeping my camera close at hand, just in case)

Anyways my sewing-friends, I'm wishing you all a great weekend!!

Gr.

That's a very cute top, and a girl cannot have too many!

I love your beautiful top. It's such a great design, no wonder you wanted two - and I don't think that three would be too many! The fabric is just right - the draped neckline works perfectly and I love the colours. I've been thinking about making that Burda skirt pattern - it's a really nice looking style.

Your top is a perfect blend of cut and colour for you. I like the skirt design you've chosen.

Your top is beautiful - interesting neckline, and the colour really brings out the colour of your eyes.

LOVE your necklace! I would love to have such a cool kitty pendant. :)
