This top was inspired by one I saw at Anthropologie that was black and white stripe mixed with a geometric print. I found these two color coordinating prints at Sawyer Brook and decided to give it a go. The challenge was that the stripe is a lightweight sweater knit and the print is a cotton gauze. The gauze had just enough stretch to be forgiving, and I cut those pieces a bit big to make sure they would fit.

Here is my swirly paisley poly charmeuse top. I bought this fabric from Sawyer Brook because I fell head over heels for the print. I wasn't sure about the fabric, though - poly charmeuse. I decided on a tee-shirt style blouse, and I am very happy with the result.
Vanilla Pique at Sawyer Brook. I am finessing the fit of the shorts. I wear these, but the fit isn't perfect. A little bunchy on the bum.
I was a little nervous to hem the charmeuse, but it turned out to be no problem. Sometimes, simplicity is best!
