linen, cotton, silk
cami: knitted by me
linen capris: Ming Basics
hair band: knitted by me with the same raw silk yarn I used for the cami
shoes (!): the most heavenly comfortable and quirky sandals from spain bought on ebay. They have a red rose and green leaf design from soft leather and round heels. Here’s a closeup
To make this top I started from the beaded cami at blackdog designs(http://designsbyblackdog.blogspot.com/2006/08/beaded-cami-i-designed-this-cami-to_03.html), and then applied some extreme shaping – wide rib, darts and short rows – to make it close fitting at the bust area. The yarn I used is a DK cotton together with a fine raw silk.
