Pick a name for this color, please?
I cut these three garments out on Sunday morning.
If you're disturbed by this amount of green (my husband was), take heart. I will probably NOT wear them together. :) I have plenty of items that will go with both. This will likely form the heart of my summer-summer wardrobe, as this is a very light-weight linen, and the clothing items that match it most closely are also very light-weight.
One really random blouse: I've had this length of fabric in my stash for some time, it was near the linen. When I grabbed that out, I grabbed this out too. It was a cheapie from the remnant table, and I had a trial tshirt to make with it. Except - I HATE working with knits. I had my experiment a couple of years back and ... I hate it. Must be better if you have a serger. I don't. Don't want one. I'll just skip the knits, thanks.
But that said - this is such a light weight fabric, that I thought, "well - I have a woven pattern that might work. How about that peasant blouse? It's a quick sew - and the worst that happens is I lose a $5 piece of fabric that I'm not using anyway."
Weirdly, it goes with the seafoam green (although I'm unsure about pairing it with *linen*) - and it obviously goes with denim. So - a win, if not a "wardrobe basic" at least I have a tshirt sort of shirt to get dirty in.
So - a very good three days at the sewing machine. :D
