 The sun has finally arrived in Vancouver!  YAY!  For this grand occasion, I made myself a new shirt.  I had some brown jersey kicking around (which had previously been destined to become leggings... didn't happen) and a lovely apple green T of my husbands.  A little cutting and pinning and sculpting on my new dressform and there it was!

So without further ado... me, Lucy (aka the Pink Fink, aka my bike), Mike and I went for a ride around the seawall, and paused to enjoy the sun and snap a few photos of the new shirt! (I have not been sewing in a long while, so I am excited to have actually made something!!)


Don't be scared...



And, just the top:



*afterthought:
There is actually no Mike to be seen in these photos as he was the photographer  Grin Ah well.

I may not have gone where I intended, but I have ended up where I needed to be.

Good job.  It's really pretty.  I'm such a big fan of greens and browns it's just a really nice outfit.

Excellent top, it's very flattering! I agree that the colours are quite nice together. You certainly look very pleased with it Tongue

 Grin Thanks for the comments...

I often look a bit crazy in photos, which makes me assume I just look crazy in life, which I am okay with.  But, yes, I am indeed pleased with the shirt!   It is nice and long, so my bum does not escape while I am furiously pedaling about town and it allowed me to experiment with cowls. 

Had anyone done a top with a BIG cowl that you could use also as a sort of hood?  Hmm...  Smiley
