ccoleman (Carol Coleman) Category: silk

Silk Dupioni was paired with Silhouette Patterns and a 1 7/8" wide beaded insertion trim to create this outfit. Silhouette Pattern #1350 was used for the lined jacket with contrasting bands around the neck, front, sleeve and pocket edges. #4200 was used for the lined Princess Sheath Dress.

The trim was purchased and then the fabric chosen to pick up the colors and shimmer of the beaded insert. The silk dupioni
(hand-woven) is from Silk Baron.com and the dress and contrasting trim is Wintermint - a shimmery silver silk made up of pale pink and teal striations. The jacket is Peppermint Stick and is described on the web site as "a mind-boggling meld of Pacific Green and Fuchsia; Magical and Delicious."
