To showcase my recent patterns released, I created ensembles for this year's summer collection with thoughts of long summer days in the forefront of my mind and visions of the great outdoors, and chose the adventures of an African safari ~ Debonair's Savanna.
For this savanna theme I made use of my patterns; Kimana, a fitted bolero jacket and the coordinating cloche hat, Belle, which works perfectly as a safari hat, working these ensembles in safari type colors, and for a finishing touch to complete the look, worked up a new, fun accessory, a bohemian bag. More details of this bag pattern called BoHoh will be blogged about in my next post when the pattern is ready for release.
