Help! What do I do with this flamingo fabric? I’m in love with it but I’m afraid I’m going to sew something that will make me look seven years old.
It’s one meter of mid-weight cotton jersey. I’ve photographed it with some leftover modal jersey I used for my Plantain Tee that seems to be a good match…because maybe all-over flamingo would be too much? Maybe colour-blocking is the way to go? The background is a pinkish cream colour (hard to photograph correctly), so finding a solid coordinating colour has been difficult.
Is there a pattern for a top that you think I could pull off with this fabric? The fact that it’s cotton jersey increases the odds that I’ll look like I’m wearing kids’ clothing. I’ve seen some great flamingo-print tops like this one by Lauren of Lladybird, or this one featured on Sweet Shard’s blog, but they’re made of floatier, more sophisticated fabrics.
Should I throw caution to the wind and go for a basic tee, and hope it looks something like this Kate Spade silk-viscose tee below? I suppose it could always be worn as a pyjama top if my unrealistic, high-end-on-a-dollar-budget expectations aren’t met. 🙂
Any suggestions you have would be most appreciated!
Thanks for stopping by.
