For the first two, I bought two quilting cottons from Peapod Fabrics. I'm lucky enough to live very close to Peapod, and the owner carries a beautiful collection of prints. I did the first tank, with no modifications to the pattern, out of the slightly heavier cotton print. It's such a cheerful color, and goes so well with my red cardigan!

For the second one, I had some 100% cotton lace edging that I knew I wanted to use. After playing around with several options, I decided to put it around the neckline. The effect is very sweet in a way that makes me think of Anne of Green Gables or Little House on the Prairie. It's not a look I go for every day, but I like it nonetheless.
