Top and purse

We're leaving for two weeks' vacation tomorrow.

I finished one more garment for the Craving Color Wardrobe (do three garments count as a wardrobe, now?). The rest of my colorful fabrics have been put back in the closet, to be taken out again next spring - I don't expect I'll feel like more summer sewing when I return in the middle of August. And no, this time I'm not taking my sewing machine - I'm counting on sunny weather and very little time spent inside the house.

This top went rather fast; I just traced around an existing garment, added two darts, plaited three unfinished strips of the fabric and attached at empire seam height. Violá!

To satisfy the rest of my color cravings, preferably all in one, I started this last-minute purse:

I hope to finish it and get all packed up and get some sleep tonight, so wish me luck!


  1. That purse is adorable! Is the little girl on it an applique? I really like the bright cheery colors :)

  2. Cute purse! And your top is lovely.

  3. Bonne vacance! I love the top and tote. See you when you get back.

  4. Such a cute little purse! Hope you got it done in time.
