I recently bought some pink linen online. It was hard to tell which colors were which when you are looking at a swatch of fabric in a photo. So I called customer service and this is what the lady told me to order. I didn't know what I was going to get until it arrived a few days later.
It started with simple, pink linen cropped pants. Then I decided to add a cuff. And a button. At the time, I didn't know which fabric to use until I spied this old Amy Butler print that I've had hanging around for ... uh ... two years. (I have no idea what it is called, sorry.) After doing all the details on the pants, I realized she needed a new shirt to match. And, voila! It all came together.
Although the linen verges slightly on Pepto-Bismol, when paired with this pink and green fabric, it's toned down a bit. She likes it. She had been bugging me to finish it. She's wearing it now. I call that a success.
