woohoo, so looking forward to this. I think the stripes will feature in the second colourway in my SWAKOP as well.

I am also tentatively planning to join this one. I just saw SewManju's recent stripey midi dress, and I want to make something similar for summer. I should have some spare time around the last two weeks of June, so it seems that ideal time.

That does look lovely (SewManju's dress).
I am not much of a dress person, but I do like stripes a lot. I quite like the idea of combining stripes of different widths into a top. I have a couple of StyleArc possibilities.

I love working with stripes.  I would love to enter this, especially if I can fit it around my Stashbusting efforts.

Count me in!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Just cut out a stripey t-shirt. Probably not very interesting but oh well! At least I can submit something.

I have a top in stripes cut out, and ready to sew today, but it'll wind up like the others and just not entering it  0_0

Just cut out a stripey t-shirt. Not very exciting but at least I'll get it finished as I want to take it on holiday on Friday.

My fabric just came, it's this cotton from fabworks, and it's really beautiful and soft and drapey. The only problem? I read the pattern wrong and ordered a meter less than I need for my pattern. I might have to be a bit creative and forgo certain extras.

I have this fabric. I started working on a pattern this weekend gone. I wasn't thinking of entering, but it has stripes, and fits the time frame, so if I do buttons/holes, it may be an entrant. (Though with my skills, not actually a contender).

@SewRuthieSews I finished my top yesterday evening.  Nothing major, not even worried about the stripes matching, but it goes with the coral satin pants I'm making.

Wasn't even specifically for this contest, I have a coral theme for a mini summer wardrobe and the top will match with 3 of the pants.
