a top comparison

The other day's post showed my new linen skirt and sleeveless cowl top that was recently completed.  I wrote how the vertical stripe pattern in the lacy sweater knit looked a little 'wonky' when wearing due to the way the shoulders are pulled in to make the 'cowl'.

Last night looking at Coldwater Creek's collection, this top caught my eye.
Coldwater Creek: Soft draping tank $44.95 - $49.95
What do you think?  Vertical stripes, softly draping cowl, nicely fitted sides, sleeveless tank.

  1. I looked and looked and looked at your previous post trying to figure out what you thought was wrong with the vertical stripes on your new cowl-neck top. There was NOTHING wrong with the way it looked and I'm glad you came to the same conclusion. (Silly girl.)

    Congrats on scraping the cardigan garment. I've been able to do that a couple of times in my life and each time I felt a huge relief and wonder why I feel I have to see something like that to conclusion when it's just. not. right. (Silly me.)

    Love watching the progress on your sewing projects. Keep 'em coming!

    1. Oh, you are so right, it was a HUGE relief! I wondered the same, because it had never occurred to me that I could just choose to 'not' make the cardi until I struggled so with the material on the top and got so frustrated. Yet, that cardi had never felt right from the beginning. Maybe we are just simply too hard on ourselves sometimes Mama Pea!
      Thank you so much!!
