Colour Inspiration for June & July - Magnetic!

With all the breathtaking photos of the recent Aurora Australis, I couldn't help but be inspired to put together a pinky-burgundy kit for this month's colour inspiration.  This photo in particular, is of Ōwhiro Bay in Wellington where the deep pink skies looked over silver waves crashing against a moody, rocky beach. This kit is jammed packed with lovely items. The main fabrics are a gunmetal grey stretch satin, combined with a deep raspberry stretch lace.

Colour Inspiration - June & July - Musicality

Punctuated with a variety of cinnamon and black elastics plus a generously wide black satin ribbon for decoration.   I can see this kit made up into a Labellum bra, pattern by LilypaDesigns or the new Margareta by B,Wear.

Elastics pick up on the pops of fuchsia and ivory.       I can see this kit made up into a Shelley by Pin Up Girls accompanied by some bamboo briefs, maybe the Ultimate Burlesque Panties by Ohhh...
