Gardening and Sewing
Mr. and I are on vacation for the rest of the week! Yay!! It has been a pretty crazy year for us and we have been looking forward to a little relaxation time at home. We spent the morning planting a mini herb garden full of basil, oregano, mint, lemon balm and cilantro.
Afterwards I was able to get a few quick snapshots taken of one of my latest projects.
The Pendrell top with three different version pleated sleeves (pictured above), ruffle sleeves and sleeveless is very versatile! I love that it looks great with jeans as well as skirts! I am already working on another.
This was my second Ginger skirt, but by far my favorite in a nice linen blend that doesn't wrinkle! I am thinking that I need to do a hip adjustment to the pattern because it does ride up a little, but otherwise perfect for dress up days at work!
