Sewing with stripes

Fall is officially here and last weekends rain made me very happy. And what a better way to celebrate it but a free Friday morning?

This pattern is the Agnes by Tilly and the buttons, my favorite everyday top pattern lately.

One of the annoying things about store bought striped garments is that sometimes the stripes don’t match. Isn’t it so?  Therefore sewing with a stripy fabric is a bit more challenging. Of course it’s optional, if you are not bothered by unmatched stripes.  But I prefer to take the time and match because it’s more pleasing to my eyes.

Matching is not that complicated, just need to pay attention and be a little more patient. Here are links to some good tutorials here and here.

Rain, a good cup of coffee and a few stripes that fit together. The small thing that can make me so happy.
