Today we've got a fantastic project for you from Geo. We love this top and think it's a great twist on a regular jersey top.
This simple top must be the most controversial piece of clothing I have ever made. I have never heard so many comments about something I was wearing. Most of them were “Oh, your top is so shiny!”. I think this is due to the fact that I never ever wear shiny things AND the artificial light in the office makes it look shinier than it actually is.
Even my husband said I look like this:
I usually use size 12 with Vogue, but this time 12 looked rather small. I compared the pattern with a top I had and decied to go with 12 for neck and armholes and 14 everywhere else. I top stitched most seams in an attempt to bring this sparkly top into day wear.
I love this blue door I found today very close to my office. I might make it my standard backdrop, as long as the people living there will let me. I didn’t meet them today, but there were a lot of people walking around smiling, I couldn’t help but to smile back. I have the blog for too long now to get shy when people stare at me. :)

Shiny is not always bad, is it?
