I pulled the "it's my birthday" card and got my husband to take a break from work (he works from home) to snap some photos for me--unfortunately my camera battery AND backup battery were both dead! So iPhone pics it is.
I love how subtle this print is. From a distance, it looks like a basic off-white...
but up close there are all of these lovely rolling shapes.
I played on the soft metallics in the print and used an antique gold for the button tabs, as well as the bias trim inside the collar and around the hem.
|Well, maybe not warm ENOUGH.|
I also adjusted the fit on the sleeves slightly--I needed to narrow them a bit between the armpit and elbow, but the bottom where they roll up was just right as long as I followed appropriate seam allowance guidelines! Last time I made the rolled-up part just a bit too tight.
So, happy birthday to me! I love wearing this top. Now, back to work on the business--I've been ordering stuff wholesale willy-nilly, and working on the website, and I made business cards, and I even got my woven labels, so I'm ready to start making samples before I go check out manufacturers! I'll try to post updates here as I make progress :)
