I was not so happy with the way the shirt came out, I intended something completely different but did make it work in practice. The pants, I love, pretty dramatic to wear these, it feels like a very full skirt but with more body definition as pants. Today was rushed and I opted to try for a one piece dress rather than a shirt and skirt. It was a challenge to achieve the symmetry in combination with fit without adding seams, but I think I got around that by accenting these design lines with the black bias binding. I was hesitant to use the red fabric for continuity and cohesiveness, but I couldn't help myself. I am still a little unsure as to how much color I actually want to involve, but I suppose since I am only a few days in and it is already happening, it will probably just continue. More later, need to watch fireworks.
