I thought I'd share some of the colors and textures featured at Loes Hinse's boutique in Carmel...I am not sure I like the wider leg pant on ME...or maybe I need to choose a top that is shorter and/or closer fitting. I do like these colors and textures, however! Final photo is the same top as the one above it. The tan one is the pattern as designed. The V Neck Shirt. The striped one has squared side seams and a boat neck. I'm wearing stripes with RTW leggings. I like this look better on me...maybe I will adjust back to wider leg pants in time!

I can't seem to keep up with day to day life, let alone blog entries! Here are a couple of new ideas, but not the best photos! This is a new seminar top pattern. Raglan sleeves and a neckband for the finish at the neckline. It is being worn over a tank/camisole of the same fabric and kind of bunched up. Note to self that it doesn't need the layered garments.
The tank is the one from the tank dress pattern. Loes suggested making a size larger and adding @4" to the length. I like these changes. I also did the double serge hem, making it a bit longer yet.
This top is a Bianca with a modified boat neck. Made in medium rather than my usual size and a couple of inches added in length. I like it! BUT. The sleeves are too long for my taste. Just not comfortable for me. It will be a easy fix to cut off an inch or so. Like most of Loes's designs, this is a comfortable outfit but a little less casual than jeans and t shirt. Pants are Ascona. I have a few more items made but not photographed.
I'm anxious to see the new The Look for more ideas! Must remember to send in deposit for another seminar!
