|Root Beer Salt Water Taffy|
As a designer I appreciate the stripe, and the check or plaid, for the ease of placing the pattern pieces together. You can count them across, or you and simply match up the design. You can also cut them out on the bias creating a completely new and fabulous accent. Stripes can be thick or pinstripe thin. Regardless of which way you wish to use them, they always appear fresh and bright.
For Amethyst and Sterling's second matching set, I chose a root beer pinstripe silk taffeta. I'm calling the collection Salt Water Taffy.

I'm pleased with the outcome of this matching set. It was entirely enjoyable to create, and I loved the detail work with Sterling's outfit. He is such an adorable "little boy" to design for.
July is the mid summer month. The mornings promise the rise in temperatures. The days can be filled with the promise of good books to read, small crafts on the rivers and lakes, tree shaded picnics, and adventures in vacation travels. Whether its a day trip to the beach, or a flight to somewhere new and exciting, relish each moment and make those memories. Each day can be a wonderful adventure when July is in the air!
