Jubilee Colour Blocking

One of the people that inspired me into colour blocking is Erica B.
decided to use the jubilee colours or Tommy's (navy blue, white and red) which ever you prefer. lol

I love how easily it came together, was actually inspired by this pattern from Burdastyle.

From Burdastyle.

Decided to add piping as and extra detail.
Quite pleased with result. Would have added link for piping tutorial, but just kept technique in my head. Will try to document all my sources henceforth.

Busy licking a sweet!!!
clearer piping detail...

How else could I get her to agree a photo shoot?
And how did I finish the back?

...with three buttons blue white red of course. :)

This is all for now.
I have tons of ideas of colour blocking, should make more sometime soon.

Regards to you and yours.


  1. How cute! Love the colorblocking!

    1. Thanks Erica, much appreciated. Following your footsteps. :)

  2. you shure there are two of them,, it looks like you slipped the picture and made a mirrow image.

    great dress(es) cute girls.

    1. The dresses are mirror images!!! That's part of the 'power' you have when you design and make things for yourself. I cut the pieces together so one piece is right others is left. However the girls are not mirror images. Lol. People do get confused though. !!

  3. Really cute! I am just loving ALL of your creations--sorry to be such a stalker today (haha), I will be following your blog shortly!

  4. Ha, thanks Tara, you flatter me. I'm so in love with colour blocking though. It might be better to follow with blogloving as I heard google friend connect will be shutting down. not sure though how and when...
    Do you have a blog yourself?


I would love to hear from you, Please leave a message, Thanks
