I was looking at the lovely items at Anthropologie
(big thanks to Silvia
and her Tip Top Smock
) and these caught my attention:
Details at Anthropologie:
Punch Bowl Halter
Salt Air Blouse
Sea Bloom Shell
Cambric Tea Blouse
Sigh. I love those designs. Very fresh and wearable. Unfortunately, Anthropologie doesn't ship to my location. However, I'm seriously coveting one of those tops and thankfully I'm in possession of vacation time and one year of design knowledge acquired from a top fashion school in France. What does that mean? It's Let's Make a Knock-off Time!
Alrighty, now! Tell me, blog friends: Which design should I make*
? It's up to you.
I chose different designs on purpose; makes picking one more fun. Let me know in the comments and I'll make the one that gets the most votes because I'm still suffering from lack of desire to knit due to Too-Freaking-Hot-Weather-itis. I will draft the pattern from scratch, look for appropriate fabric and then sew it up without (hopefully) any boneheaded moments. I'll show photos here, of course. Welcome to the Skinny Rabbit Sewing Hour!
P.S. Most of my crafty time is currently spent sewing, but I should mention that I have been knitting a few rows at night, when it's cooler. Still need me knittin' fix, lassies. Arrrr!
