You know by now the only thing we like more than a theme is a story.
This is a story with a theme, a blue note, if you will.
longtime shade of  our obsession and affection:

And as you also may remember, we like to show you how things progress,from brewing in our thread laden bohemian brain to ending up on the rail.
First things first:
You're going to get down and dirty, and you're going to need a suitable uniform. 
If a leotard isn't solving our sartorial problems on a daily basis, then overalls are.
the hundred year old, lavender faded French denim kind.
This is what we wear to work:

(this is called 'something old, something blue and some boots')

And we are so in a blue mood this day we start pulling out every scrap of indigo, every shade of cerulian and navy we can find in the studio and lay them all out to consider the potential.

 A very old Japanese batik panel  that Gypsy gave us makes the cut:
 We consider trimming options. Gold wire trim is always fabulous, but we are craving something more rustic. And we cut triangles from an antique French market apron and decide to quilt them on.

Faded denim over Indigo, offset with a little bit of lace:

 We cover some piping in some soft coral and edge that bad boy
And because we believe in beauty on the inside, we give her a seaweed lining with a tiny row of hand stitching in orange:
And we hang her up to check her out:
 This is Indigo:
