Applöse: Marilyn - Rowan 53
|Marilyn - Rowan 53|
a design by Galina Carroll
using Rowan Purelife Revive
with accents of Rowan Summerspun
This Revive had been in my stash for a couple of years. I bought it for a pattern, but changed my mind. (How often has that happened to you?) So it was there, waiting patiently for the perfect design. When I first saw Marilyn, I loved the neckline and the striped detail...but it was a little too stripey for me, if you know what I mean.
By changing the colourway to something with subtle contrast, I kept the integrity of the design, but made it my own. (Sometimes we can't see past the shades used in the original....tweaking the shades used in a design like this is easy to do.)
