I'm not exactly sure why this happened. I took the next two pictures within seconds of each other at about 7:30 at night. It makes me know that I would love to take a photography class.
Anyway, it's my beloved weeping Redbud tree. And it occurred to me that I had fabric that reminded me of these pictures. So I made anotherHotPatterns Boho Deluxe Peasant Top.
I added some under the bust detail by gathering about 8" worth or the front with elastic, and then added a self-fabric rosette, beaded in the center.
I really love this pattern. I know, I know, a girl like me shouldn't wear a peasant top. But, the Hotpatterns peasant top is so nicely cut. It's not as billowy...with a more shaped bodice, and not too many gathers. I typically don't wear this type of top alone, but under a sweater or jacket, so it works for me...especially if I emphasize the high waist area by drawing it in with some sort of embellishment.
My own Redbud top!
