Indigo Splicing and Dicing!

Brisbane’s hot and humid weather had urged me to start making some cool summer tops! First one is a linen top made using squares of Shibori dyed fabric that I made during a workshop last year when we had an indigo vat on the go. The pieces of fabric I am working with are all 50cm x 50cm as I had planned on using them for cushions. I am using a Very Easy Vogue pattern that I found in my pattern stash. (Someone gifted it to me a while ago.) I like the clean lines and simple construction.

The smallest size on the pattern is 14 and I am usually a 10 or 12 in tops so I have reduced the size. I am about half way through sewing and had hoped to finish it this afternoon so I could post the finished product but had some custom make sewing to get done too. I am unsure about top stitching… I am itching to add some bright pops of coloured stitching but can’t decide! I guess I get to sleep on it which might be a good thing.
