Here are some photos I took while snoop shopping last Thursday. I didn't buy any of these garments, but thought the details were worth capturing. The interesting trim, including raw bias inspired me to do the bias finish on my striped top. It's' the details that people like, and pay extra for. Here's a simple Diane Von Furstenberg silk knit shift dress. Click here to see the amazing things she's done with stripes and mixed prints this spring.
Here's a top that reminded me of the new 2X4 tunic top pattern. Don't be afraid to use knits for that one - just compare the finished measurements with a similar knit top you already own. This is a fine striped knit with a sheer floral woven raw bias trim at the neckline and a fine rib knit for the sleeve. It's very flattering on. The sleeve is fitted and I pushed it up. Underneath a fairly sheer fabric like this I would normally wear a nude bra instead of the black one here that shows through with the black tights LOL.

Here's a striped T-shirt with a henley neckline that is trimmed in a floral print knit that is twisted.
