Chocolate Collection 6PAC - Brown and bronze knit top

Here's the 6th piece of collection, a knit top of the same style as before, this time in dark brown jersey printed with a bronzey gold metallic swirl pattern.
I've just used the camera flash here (and switched off the room light) and its come out much more true to colour. I can use that approach to retake the other photos.

I love the metallic accents here, which adds interest, texture and a bit of sparke, but not really any colour.
This has been in the fabric resources for a long time, and I don't recall when I bought it. I should think it predates my move to Derbyshire though, so more than 7 years.

I also took all 6 pieces outside and hung them on the fence under the carport for this daylight shot.
 This gives a good indication of the colours, ie pretty dark brown. The tweed is really pretty and needs some close up shots I think.

You have got a lot accomplished, it helps to motivate me as I need to get a travel wardrobe together. No need to sew complicated items, but just have some items that are comfortable to wear and work well together. Keep it simple, I must tell myself.

I especially like your two tops. They are elegant and pretty.

Thank you Julie. A bit more effort if you want pockets in things.
Carol I suspect the tops will get worn the most as they as more multi season.

I love the metallic prints and the tweed! I don't remember seeing you in browns so that will be interesting--it makes sense that you could wear it well with your hair color.
