Party time and MOT #2 Progress

Yesterday I finished and wore this finally. I like it and it's very comfy. I not sure mandarin collars are well suited for bamboo knits. It could just be me. Here the review I did on this top over at Pattern Review. My friend Marissa celebrated her birthday last night, and my husband and I decided to go party with her and the gang. We had a great time. My husband finally got a chance to meet my friend Regina's husband, and the 2 men never left each other. They talked and drank for 3 hours straight.

I also started working on my second top for MOT. It's Simplicity 4112. A Built by Wendy pattern. I'm making View B. This one has gone together fairly easy. It's another mandarin collar, and I had no problems with this one. I think I got it down now. If I have some time today, I want to work on the button holes(a new thing for me) today and finish hemming it up. By the way, my mother made it through her procedure in flying colors and is doing very well. I want to thank all of you for the prayers and well wishes. They worked.
