When I was cleaning up this weekend, I found this sea-green cotton pique hanging up in one of my closets. There are ginormous white flowers along one selvage and I thought it might be fun to play with the pattern a little. I just couldn’t pull the trigger on any of the fabrics I posted a few days ago (and thank you all for your input!) so I decided that finding this fabric was a sign!
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far. I’m not sure if I want to recut that right front to show more of the flower or not. I’m thinking that I’ll cut the right band with some white and the left band solid green. Obviously, this version will be pocketless.
This is the back. I would have liked more white but I was limited in yardage and wanted to save one flower in case I recut the front.
This could turn out to be a really cool jacket or it could end up being ridiculous. I wonder what Tim Gunn would say? Would he rub his chin and say ‘this worries me’ or would he say ‘this is fresh, fun and flirty!’? Hmmmm
