nobis opus splendeat: we need more glitter

I just received a bunch of these beautiful, soft cotton knits called “Karavan” by Valori Wells. Now that it’s arrived I’m regretting the prints that I didn’t order and might get them sent along too. What I think I’m going to end up with is several different pieces of clothing all co-ordinating in each colorway. This is the first piece.

This is the first print, the colors are listed as “fuchsia, pink, silver, gold and tobacco”. I ended up running out to the store to get some FOE in some appropriate shades… I ended up with brown, olive, turquoise, and a dusty rose – here I used olive.

The entire process took about 2h. I basically started with a large rectangular piece of fabric, sewed a seam to make it a tube, and then freehand-cut the shape for the top. Next time I would make it scoop more under the arms, but come back up in the back. Add the perfect colored FOE and you’re done!
