summer walk

i've been sewing quite a lot this summer, and i thought i would start sharing some of my finished projects. (thanks for the interest to those who have asked!)

so, here is my new blue top,

here is mike with a happy fig,

and here is me with a gnat flying  into my face.
i used this pattern, with a couple of changes.  (leaving out the puffs on the sleeves, and making a gathered skirt instead of the one in the pattern)
i've made a few different versions of this guy.  i also love it as a dress, with short sleeves or sleeveless, and with or without the collar. oh so many options.
