remember this thing?

yeah, i wasn't that crazy about it either. it was a great idea, but it just didn't fit quiiiite right, and i knew that to make it really fit awesome, i was going to have to rip out the whole thing. which would've been fine, except that i also didn't like how the space-dyeing competed with the lace pattern on the bottom half of the garment. i don't know if you can see it, but i just did a really simple eyelet pattern, which looked okay but it wasn't quite what i was hoping for.

so i bought some solid yellow rowan cotton rope to make another, better fitting incarnation of this halter top. and guess what my berocco echo turned into?

surprise! it's a coachella!

this turned out to be a much better fit for this yarn, which is super light, soft, and drapey. i actually like the way it started pooling at the bottom. here i think the colors enhance the design instead of competing with it. yay!
