this is going to be a very short post, because our national team has reached the semi final in the Fifa World Cup and kick off is in only a few hours.
Since the World Cup took place in Germany in 2006 it has become custom to add a little bit of black, red and gold (our national colors, the gold is mostly yellow) to your wardrobe, jewelry, car, bike, dog, whatever to support our team, especially on matchdays.
I already made two tops in the previous years which kind of reflect the recurring look of the jerseys our team is wearing. But they look very sportive, so this time I thought I could create a more elegant look with the national colors added as a tiny, subtle detail.
This is what I came up with:
It's is made from a dark-gray linen fabric from my stash and braided embroidery floss. The fabric has been there for approximately two years, making this another qualifier for the Summer Stashbust 2014. The rest of it is supposed to become a tablecloth for our dining table some day with some hemstitching. What can I say, I got very easily inspired by this post from the Colette Blog in 2012, bought the fabric and the wing needle and that's it. Why can't inspiration strike balanced to my available sewing time? Guess where my stash comes from! Are you the same, easily inspired with too little time?
Let's focus on the top again. It's a combination of the free Diana camisole pattern by Sewloft
