Sometimes fabrics just speak to you. This Liberty print says it all to me - love it!

The interfaced pockets have an embroidered, entredeux trimmed flap and are bound with 1/16" lime microcheck. I like to prefinish my bindings to the exact length needed, using a technique that angles the ending seam allowance away from the final finished edge. It gives a much cleaner, less bulky finish than trying to tuck the binding end seam allowances in at the finished edges. I prefinished the length of the bias bindings on the neckline, pockets, and lower edge of the swing top.
The edges of the pocket flaps, mock front yoke, and ruffle sleeves are finished with entredeux which has been trimmed and embellished with a cross stitch and running stitch in two contrasting colors.
The top fabric is petite point pique and is fully lined with Imperial batiste. The cuffed, reversible capris are fine line navy pique reversing to microcheck. This will be a new class project for 2013 in sizes 3-6.
I'm trying to step away from the traditional pastel pink/blue/ green color palette that is so lovely to work with but often over used. I'm making this set up in an alternate color way of aqua pique and orange microcheck. I don't think I've made anything orange in my entire life - well... maybe in the 70's but I can't be held responsible for that.
