The Rhapsody in Blues jacket (below) was the piece of this week and it was created along with others as a challenge to myself. Some one asked me if I ever made lighter weight jacket and my reply was no. I saw that as a call to create and I love strip piecing, so off I went to my stash to see what I could see. The fabrics included are my hand dyed cotton, gifted fabrics and purchased yard goods.
Below my "Crimsons Tide" jacket was created last week and it is the first in this series. Yes I do know that I there are other colors involved, but the overall color dictated the names. The jackets are foundation piece onto chiffon and this point I can't conceive of pockets, but I'm working on it. The jackets are created in the kimono style because I wanted them to flow as the wearer moves.
