I know I'm a bit late. But the fact is that I spent the last week in bed because of a flu that had me down in more than one way. Things seem to be looking up however and it was about time I showed my face.
O, wait, that's another story. I'm not showing my face yet for I have an infection on my chin at the place where a mole has been removed 5 weeks ago. It was for pure cosmetical reasons and I can't seem to shut up that little voice in the back of my head saying: "Serves you right for being vaaaaain...!!". I have some cream for it since yesterday and next monday I'm gonna pay my physician another visit to have it checked. I was hoping for a recovery with an almost invisible scar. Now I'm just hoping for a recovery. Strange, how easy you adjust your expectations.
Luckily I have a very pretty, headless model in my house. That's right, The Blue Lady. And she was more than willing to step in for me once again. Because.......tumdadadummmm....I have something new to show you. And this is it. My very first project of this year. And thát's a good start!
Center-backseam at the neck (this picture shows the right colour):
I absolutely lóve the fact that it's a simple pattern but with just the right detail for a great effect. The fabric is thicker than you would normally use for this top but the drape is amazing. I'm glad it turned out this way.
It is an easy and fairly quick to make top and I had it in my mind for quite some time. I'm glad it's finally finished and I can move on to new things.
Are there any plans already? Yes, actually there are:

What do you think? Could be nice right?
