When Alison Glass asked me to participate in her Big Blog Tour - celebrating her 74 new fabrics - over this summer/fall, of course, I said Yes! I have loved working with her Lucky Penny collection for the Sisters' Ten BOM. Her newest collections, Sun Print and Clover Sunshine, are so vivid and saturated with color, I just want to add them all to my stash.
Get a load of this.... it's Sun Print's Corsage print. In CLEMENTINE. Don't you love it? It's oh so wonderful for autumn right now. But it's just a hip color for all year around too. Orange is the new black, right?
I decided to change things up and bit and try sewing a pair of pajama pants. I used Noodlehead's pajama pant tutorial and a pair of my own (knit-seems-to-be-the-problem) pj pants as a base for the pattern. Oh my! Quilters and roughing-it garment sewing don't mix! The pj pants I made are gorgeous - but I couldn't even get them half way up my thigh.
I love this pant design. There is a faux drawstring in the front; elastic and shirring in the back. What a fab look.
Corsage in Clementine is meant to be paired with Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures, Topo in Orange. Perfect.
