Creative Every Day/Blue, Day 2

Although my house is full of blue and white, I seldom wear blue, usually gravitating toward aquas, turquoise, or lime green. This cute little jacket was purchased on my trip to China a few years ago. I like it because it is shibori on indigo. The jacket is well made with charming details like satin piping and knot buttons. It even has vents at the side that are piped with the satin. I paid a ridiculously low price for it. I hate to think of how little the workers were paid.

I have always been interested in shibori. I've done very little by myself and used some recently in a small quilt shown here. I just ordered two books from Amazon and plan to teach myself some of the many techniques.
