The Cabarita pattern – that top I just made – has me daydreaming. I love this top and I’m currently obsessed with figuring out ways to play with fabric with this top. Here’s an idea I’m mulling over, though beyond this one I’m at a loss.

There’s this black swirls mesh knit from Marcy Tilton

I’m scouring online fabric shops for stretch mesh knits and other sheer knits. If I go for a jersey I could also do the neck piece in a woven but then what do I do for the sleeve binding?

Any of you finding knits you’re falling in love with? I’m in a knit rut with what I’m reaching for- I’m only really going for dots or stripes. Not that there’s anything wrong with those but I want something else.
