Tropical Parrots - Colour theme and Design
When I found the viscose blouse with passion flowers and butterflies print, it was the inspiration to use the bright parrots and olive viscose dress. Cream background and illustrative plants lift the scheme and the orange flower matched well.
A black viscose shirt with orange flowers formed the lining base to start making 'Tropical Parrots'. The buttoning strip was utilised for the dress front. Collar lapels change to red view. Butterfly print (inside facing) makes an interesting focal point. (see making)
The undershirt was Plus Size XXL, so finished dress is suitable 40 - 44 inch/112mm bust. Front length 32 inches/81mm.
