I decided that, since it *had* been a year in progress, that I'd wear the StarsINHeaven tunic today.
Sorry for the pitiful bathroom-mirror self-portrait, but, well, ya do what ya gotta do.
I bought the linen at Textile Fabrics Annual Big Sale last July (as in, 2009). I love the colors in it, but the stripes run crosswise. Interesting. I cut the 'upper sleeve' on the cross grain, so that there's some variation happening. I've got stripes on running crosswise, lengthwise and diagonally...whew! ;)
It's gonna wrinkle like crazy, and it doesn't drape at all, but for all that it's a very comfy summer-feeling top.
Which is good, because even though we're officially past Labor Day, it's still gonna be 90 something degrees Fahrenheit today...
