When sewing for Roo, everyday wear can seem like 'frosting' given her love of color and pattern. Remember these recent additions??? She likes classic pieces zhuzhed up a notch or two! When she needed a little everyday jacket, the perfection that is the Morris Blazer, by Grainline Studio, came to mind. I have made SEW many!!! They are comfiest when made in a fabric with a bit of stretch, like this FROSTING quality print she chose from JoAnn's. It is somewhere between a ponte and a woven with just a tad of stretch in one direction. Though not a ball gown, the explosion of color surely qualifies as the perfect frosting for her basic (if vivid pink and yellow are basic!!!) cake!!!
|Brilliantly professional, while colorfully true to Roo!! Morris Blazer Frosting styled with yellow knit B5354, Lands' End pencil skirt that I tailored for her to improve the fit, and purple suede pumps.|
|More Morris Blazer Frosting!!! This time with a vivid pink M6282 knit top, the tailored pencil, and black booties!|
Thanks for the inspiration ~ Roo, Heather (@closetcase.patterns) and Kelli (@truebias)!
