My finished project is live today -- just click here.
A confession: I had the two fabrics above sitting in my stash for a year.
Longtime readers may remember that last August I was working on a 1920's pajama and kimono outfit for Cathy. These were the fabrics I was planning to combine:
But when I finished the outfit, the lilac swiss dot didn't seem to harmonize with the other more muted shades.
And I could never figure out how to cut that (arguably) Moorish-inspired print into narrow trim. So it sat.
Here's Cathy's finished outfit, which I loved (as did she).
I ended up taking the swiss dot pajama pants apart and keeping the fabric for something else. And that something else turned out to be a shirt. And the printed pattern became another shirt.
Add pale chartreuse linen shorts and, bingo!, instant summer outfit suitable for seaside strolling, which I hope to engage in next week.
Have a great day, everybody!
