Two Bees or Not Two Bees

I completely fell in love with this wonderful golden bee printed jersey from Stitch Fabrics, and I was in such a hurry to buy it that I misread the units of sale and thought I was buying it by the half metre, when actually it was by the full metre, so naturally I ended up with twice as much as I needed.
Well there's only one thing to do when that happens - make two somethings!
First is a Tilly and the Buttons Agnes top for me.

And second a racer back tank top for Eloise (pattern is Simplicity 8338)

And just in case you thought I'd abandoned it, here is my up to date temperature SAL, look at all those lovely reds and ornages!

You've been a busy bee ...... couldn't resist LOL
Nice new tops for you both.
The temp SAL is looking good.

That fabric is fantastic, Christine--love those bees and both tops! Looks like things are heating up over there!

I have been eyeing up those bees too! Seems like it worked out well that you ordered too much. Both makes look great x

Oh my goodness, I love any fabric with bee's on it, beautiful tops.
Your Temp stitch along is lovely.

What a lucky misshap - the fabric looks great on both garments. Great progress on the temperature SAL as you too have been venturing into the reds!

I had to buy my bee top, both of yours look so much better!
Yes, bring on the warmer colours!
