Olive/black tropical leaves with bright parrots, and cream based floral with butterflies.
Two viscose summer dresses were used in the making, fabrics being chosen for ‘tropical’ theme and colour balance. Over all, viscose outside and inside gives a well hanging garment. Under shirt had buttons removed to stitch on reverse side of button facing incorporating existing button holes. Collar was taken form a shirt-blouse, with rounded lapels added in pink tropical floral cotton. Additionally pink cotton skirt and some hem patches of pink flowers on cotton.
