weekend projects

Last Sunday I was a busy bee and made this top. It is made from the same pattern as my pink ditsy top - Simplicity 4123, but without the capped sleeves. I have made this one a size smaller than the pink one and it fits much better. The contrasting neck line was inspired by a couple of tops by Olga and Pink Trees that I spotted on the sew i knit 'make a top' sew along. I am really pleased with it and this weekend I plan to make a matching red cotton A line skirt with darts just below the wasitline.

I have a few projects that need finishing off - leftovers from last summer - and have bought a lovely orange trim from Liberty to inspire me to finish a dress that at the moment looks like a sack ;-(
