It is not very fancy. And since it was my turn to pick the picture, you would have thought that I had a project already in mind.
But I didn't.
I just really liked the picture. As I thought about the picture, two things kept coming to mind.
The colors ... oranges, browns, and blue,
The straight lines.
After a lot of thought and tossing of fabric on the table, I designed a jumper with a square neckline and box pleats to make straight lines that also created dimension. And the fabric I picked had all those colors that Tuscany is famous for.
If you look closely, you can see the bias trim. I made this trim out of some brown fabric that looked to me (from a distance) like little bricks. I thought that would be a fitting way to finish all the edges. And I used it to make a small bow in one corner of the neckline.
I think it will be a pretty addition to Abi's Back-to-School clothes this fall.
