Complementary Colors Girls Summer Shirt

  Complementary colors are those colors that are 
on opposite sides of the color wheel.


As I designed my top. I decided to use the complementary colors of  green/red and  blue-green/red-orange.  Using complementary colors is a bit tricky, so the use of this Kaffe Fassett print helped me pull it all together.



For me, the design all clicked together when I used the red-orange eyelet solid over the blue-green fabric.  I loved how the blue and green colors just popped through the holes in the eyelet fabric.  


















This easy to wear top is complimented by these dark indigo tie-dyed jeans.
 Smiles,

      When I put that red eyelet over the green fabric everything just clicked! Putting colors together is my favorite part of sewing.

  2. Very clever! The red eyelet is an awesome touch and a smart way to incorporate the green without being overwhelming.

    1. Lindsay,
      I agree that a little green goes a long way. I love green as a supportive color though.
