Yes, I really need to clean this mirror this weekend. Ewww. And I was too lazy to set up the tripod, so what I ended up with was this dark, blurry, can't-see-anything-photo. So, imagine the best-fitting, most-flattering pair of brown jeans you've ever seen. LOL! Seriously, after the fiasco with the first rendition of the back yoke, these turned out very well. I like them a lot. I'll like them even better when this past Thanksgiving leaves my waist. We won't even talk about the Thanksgivings before then that really need to leave the waist & hips as well. ;-)
Nothing fancy for the topstitching. I'm feeling kind of blah and boring this week. I did one row of regular straight stitch and then two rows of triple straight stitch on front and back pockets, inspiration for which was stolen right from one of the photos/drawings in a recent Ottobre Woman.
The waistband facing is a brown & aqua polka-dot cotton. The fly facing (not shown) doesn't match, but it does coordinate. I used scraps from this skirt fabric.
I'm going to cut another Onion top tonight. It's all ready to go. It's just me and the dogs here tonight so I might even sew too.
I should also cut another (or twenty) Ottobre tee like the one I'm wearing in the photo above. I wear this one and my other Ottobre tees ALL THE TIME. I haven't worn the first make of the Onion top very much because the weather turned too warm again. It just hangs in the closet waiting for the temps to drop below 80. Don't feel too jealous if you're in the cold climates — some of the humidity has returned too. Ugh. Living in Florida has a lot of perks, but I'm really ready for some long-sleeves weather to stick around more than a week.
