Second June Capsule Contest Garment

Here is the second item in my June Capsule for the contest on Stitcher's Guild. It is a lime knit top with knot front detail. Apologies for the wavy hem, I think that will go once it has been through the wash. This is a beautifully soft and stretchy cotton mix knit - should be lovely to wear.

I'm going to go and raid the stash in the garage now for bottom in black and black/white to go with the louder tops. As a pear shape (heavy thighs) I try to keep bottoms darker and simpler and have all the print/interest/colour going on at the top.

Stash raided successfully. I have two fabrics for bottoms. A black poly with white stripes which will be the Loes Hinse 6 gore skirt with godets (and pretty loud it will be) and a very nice piece of suiting weight fabric in black with a very subtle self stripe in the weave which will be some Burda WOF wide leg trousers. I have cut the trousers out and threaded up the serger and sewing machine in black thread ready to start to sew tomorrow evening - energy permitting :-) I reckon I can at least manage 30 mins a night which should make good progress by the end of the week!

Both of your tops are pretty summer colors. Enjoy wearing them.

Another lovely top. I think I like this one the best as I do think the knot tops are particularly flattering on you.
I am very intrigued by the "loud" stripy fabric and am going to be watching out carefully for this garment to appear. You have a fabric stalker. :)
