Bateau neckline top

Oh yes, I am alive! Not in perfect condition considering the years, but still alive. LOL 
Still trying to recover from this terrible winter. But, that is not a reason why I'm not blogging for more than two months. I was so busy.
After a year and a half struggle to sell my crocheted jewelry and bags on Etsy, I finally decided to try something different. I offered my jewelry to local souvenir and gift shops, and that was successful. Since I live in most popular tourist city in Croatia, and I can for sure say, very well known in whole world- selling "at home" was something expected, and I don't know why I didn't try it before. But, it's never too late.
I have been making handbags and jewelry for days, and totally limited access to the internet.
I was in a hurry,  didn't take pictures of most things I made, but I am so happy that I finished everything.
I even manage to sew something for myself.
That is simple raglan sleeves top with the bateau neckline from February Burda.
Fabric: Soft gray knit wool and something blend with animal print.
Alterations: Shortened the sleeves and top length.
I love it! Now, I have two TNT patterns for two tops with the bateau neckline. This one with raglan sleeves and one with set-in sleeves I made last year.
The flower for the necklace at the picture I made using this tutorial.
