Tie-Dye Top

Tie-Dye Linen Top
Stitching Detail
I copied the pattern from a really cute cotton top I bought in San Miguel during Margie & Arounna's visit but cut it out of beige linen and tie-dyed it in a warm chocolate brown color. After I finished it this morning I decided to add some stitched details with turquoise and red embroidery floss. Remember this linen tunic I made last year?

So beautiful, I love how it drapes and the brown/turquoise combo. The new issue of Anthology has an article on San Miguel de Allende, can't wait 'til it arrives.

Yes lovely colours, I was searching for a pattern of something similar to your original tunic, it looks so comfy to wear. Would love to know who has a pattern for something similar? Fabulous work!
