Blues

The girl is on a blue kick recently, so far be it from me to not buy tons of fabric in those colors!

I had already purchased this Cascade Supplex from Zenith & Quasar when I volunteered to sew up this sample fabric for the current Fabric Anthropology round.  They look pretty perfect together!

The print file on the website looks more turqoisey-blue, but the cotton lycra is more of a royal blue mix with a little light purple.  It was hard to photograph, but trust me…very pretty.

I decided to make another Foliis Jacket from Sofilantjes, since she wears the other one I made her this fall all the time.  Might as well make some leggings to match, along with a top underneath, too, right?

This will be another tip of don’t-do-what-I-did.  I forgot to make sure the zipper was even all the way to the top before sewing it up.  This is especially needed on knits that stretch.  Yep…doesn’t match at the top by about an inch. *facepalm*

I wanted to jazz up the jacket a little, so I added an HTV design to it.  I drew three birds and then used the warp tool to make them different sizes and such.  Then placed a bunch all together and a few separately.  I put three down one side of the leggings and two smaller ones up on her shoulder.

The back wing design I drew a month or so ago.  Glad I got to use it finally!
