Navy Chevron cotton print in our shop that pairs so beautifully with the Bridgetown fabric that it was a no brain-er to pair them. When thinking about a color to tie it all together I decided to go back to my Blue Madonna roots! I found this awesome coral-orange pipping it was just the pop of color that I needed.
I think that a mark of a good pattern is one that you can make your own. I loved that fact that shirt looks fantastic with a sweet little flora like Heather's of Becker Hill Boutique, a modern geometric like Sarah's from The Crazy Tailor and a solid like Kelly's, over at Handmade Boy. Is it not stunning in it's simplicity! I decided to have my top bodice and the front panel be the same fabric and use the chevron only for the sides and back panels. I think too much more of the chevron would have driven me cross-eyed. I love this top and of course we had to take a family car ride down the road to the river for some really fun photo opportunities!
