Colourblock Torrens

Pink and red should always be seen together, or whatever the opposite is to the saying about how you should never pair red and pink.

I used a pink and red linen from The Fine Cloth Company for this colour-blocked Torrens Box Top and Glebe Pants combo. I haven’t hemmed the top or pants yet because I had second thoughts about the combo because it’s just such a huge-scale colourblock on me.

I’ve been experimenting with large statement pocket on the top to see if this fixes the combo. I’m not set on this shape pocket, but I do think bigger will be better here.

Because the pink wasn’t especially opaque I lined the pants in a deliciously slinky rayon. That’s partly why I’m so desperate to get this pocket right so that I end up with an ensemble that I love- the pants are Just So Dang Comfie!

In the background of my pics you can see my first day of improv quilting for the 30 days of improv quilting in August. One of the pink shades is leftovers from this matching set! I’m looking forward to exploring more during the month of August (and also to using up a lot of scraps in a really pleasing way)!
