Lets Vogue

I finished the striped top from the Spring/Summer Vogue and I'm very happy with it.

Instead of finishing the neck edge with single crochet I slip stitched in the back loop to bring in the neckline.

You have no idea how many different seaming techniques I tried before I finally just machine stitched it, duh.

I was really worried because if the stripes didn't match taking the seam out would have been a nightmare, thankfully they matched up nicely.

See the skirt the model is wearing I really like how it doesn't match and wanted a similar look without looking ridiculous.

I've been looking for a coordinating print fabric FOREVER and found this but I'm just not crazy about it and I really think it would be bordering on ridiculous. Maybe I should just take Julia's advice and go with a pair of neutral linen pants.

The garden is in, this year I did tomatoes, red, yellow and green bell peppers and green beans. We've had an awful lot of rain but everything seems to be doing ok.

Two seams on this sweater didn't really satisfy my need to sew, we'll have to see what else develops.
