How surprised was I to stop at Eureka Patchwork for the first time, last month and see an assortment of colour blocked fabrics. The staff had some of the range on display - and they caught my eye. I knew exactly what I could make with the fabric.
|Colour choice 2|
Stripes are 19 cm or 7- 1/2 inch wide strips
Regrettably - I did not take a photo of all the colourways laid out for Miss 5BN and myself to make the choice.
|Fabric is Nuances by P&B Textiles|
|Colour choice 1 - won on the day|
|Pleating the colour blocked fabric|
|Nearly all pleated!|
I plan to make it sleeveless -- it seems to suit the older child better with a smocked garment - and Miss 5BN feels she has more options to wear a sleeveless smocked dress--without feeling too over the top!!
