Love the striped and the chiffon-- each serves a different purpose, and each is great!

That is a great striped shirt! Stripes are so much fun, aren't they? The collar works well with it.

Your top is cute. The stripes are fun to wear and flattering going in that direction. I'm thinking of using these colors for my next wardrobe next summer as I have so much in my stash.

Thank you Clare! I do think the 'City Safari' is rather turned into 'Coral and Sandstone' but I love sewing the co-ordinated wardrobe items. I hang them from the bookshelves behind me when I sew, so whenever I pause for a break they are there to inspire me. I put RTW items and accessories there as well. However it does make getting at the books a bit of a problem!
