As usual I design it myself according to my taste. I already made 2 tops using this design and I really like them a lot. I wear them too ofter that I believe they will complain if they can talk. Fortunately the can not! LOL!
Because of frequent washing, one of them needs to retire as the color has faded. It is already served me for more than 4 years, so I think it’s about time to retire.
I stay at home most of the time, and I like to wear something comfy and practical at home. That is the reason why I choose cotton material to make. I also add 2 big pockets so I can put anything there, like milk bottle, toys, or even yarn there. Love those pockets! This top is also ideal for breastfeeding, since it opens in front.

Finally, I finished my new top. I decided to name it “Falling Leaves” the same as the name of the lace pattern. I really satisfied with the result this time. It fits me nicely and it made me look slimmer.

These photos were taken after we went to eat at my in law’s favorite restaurant in front of the beach. Lauri really can model naturally without me have to arrange it first. I wonder where she got the talent from. Someday, I will make another knit or crochet dress for her to model.

I finally managed to finish my new project. However, there is one problem. I DON”T LIKE IT! This is the first time EVER that I don’t like my own design. The idea seemed nice and I imagined it would look nice (at least on me), but the reality said different thing. It was not flattering at all. I looked fat wearing it. At first I was thinking to block it and see whether it will look better after blocking. However, after giving it a second thought, I don’t think it will improve a lot even after blocking, so I frogged the whole thing up to waist. Total I frogged 4 balls of yarn. About half a month of work is wasted.
Anyway, I have already got another idea how to finish it. So, keep checking this blog :)
