Red Currant Tarte

This tarte features two layers: the crust (after this recipe minus the topping) and a coconut macaroon top with the red currants (after this Nourishing Traditions recipe - I only used two egg whites and adjusted the amounts of the other ingredients accordingly).

Green Stripes

Self drafted kimono sleeve shirt, stripes matched on each and every seam! The fabric is very soft and the jersey has almost no stretch recovery. I therefore stabilized the shoulder seams and neckline with Vlieseline tape and added banded hems (inspired by the Sewaholic Renfrew Top - I was afraid that machine stitched hems would stretch too much). The knit is an organic cotton from Siebenblau.
