Another boring basic top :: that is so needed

Not much to say except a third Alabama Chanin inspired top has been completed using NEWLOOK 6735 pattern.  I'm wearing it here with my Vogue 1247 cream corduroy skirt.  This is turning into one of my favorite skirts!
Neckline finished like the others.  You can read about the technique I used here.  Getting faster with my hand-stitching as this neckline was finished in less than an hour.  Yes!  Again, herringbone stitch with double strands of Coats & Clark button thread.  Serged other seams.
Clearly this is a great pattern for me as this is my third version of this top.  Sleeves were lengthened to long-sleeve.  I like to be able to push them up if I want to.
Ox-eye Daisies are a'bloomin' here.  These were growing wild on our property, and through the years I've successfully transplanted them here 'round our old wagon wheel.
Now, back to Spring/Summer sewing projects!

  1. Great color on you!

    We have the same daisies here . . . just not for another couple of months. Or three. Or four. ;o} That shot is pretty enough to go on a card!

    1. Thank you Kathy! I'd originally planned this shirt and skirt together as a casual outfit.

  6. Basics are what we wear most, especially if you live a country lifestyle. There's a lot to be said for sticking to what works I think. The teal looks striking on you, and I love these little AC inspired neckbands you stitch. I'm sure they are fun to do - I'll tackle this sort of project next year. Your daisies are so pretty - I love daisies - always happy looking.

    1. So true.... as I live a country lifestyle. Basics are what I live in... but so uninspiring at times. The neckbands are a great place to start with a little AC inspiration! You'd be so much faster than I with your experience. Thank you Sarah Liz!
