YAY! I finished the Roxanne blouse from http://www.victorypatterns.com/products/
I had made a wish for the right gardening blouse and here it is! http://www.victorypatterns.com/products/roxanne/
The back of this blouse is SOOO cool!!!! I LOVE the pleats - how graceful that makes this blouse!
Of course, I made changes to the blouse. I moved the neck opening to the front and make the collar continuous in the back. With the neck opening now in the front, I used a button rather than hook and eye. Check out the topstitching!!!!!!
I used a white eyelet fabric too protect me somewhat from the sun when I am working in the HOT sun!
The only time I was NOT gardening was during and after this gorgeous rain we had the last couple of days!!!!!! Which gave me time to sew and take photos!
I can't get enough of the back of this beautiful blouse!
OH how I LOVE topstitching!!!!!!!
I made a change to my perfect Tee - making it even more perfect!!!!!
It is important to me to have tee's that go well under sheer fabric like the white eyelet
The cool thing about this pair of Oh La Leggings from http://papercutpatterns.com/ is that I used a stretch cotton knit denim. I LOVE this fabric because it is very stretchy but thicker (hopefully more durable) than a regular cotton knit fabric. I found this fabric at http://www.girlcharlee.com/knit-fabric-c-90.html but they don't have anymore! If anyone knows where I can get more of this fabric let me know!
Did you notice the whole time I was taking these photos my cat, Hatchet, was stalking something in the background!

The mind of the day draws no attention;
It dwells within the silence with elegance
To create a space for all our words,
Drawing us to listen inward and outward.
