Navy morphs into denim blue

 Much as I love the dark navy I decided to make a few pieces in a slightly lighter shade, more a classic denim blue.

These will probably be tops in plain blue, blue with a white stripe and a print/burnout, plus another cardigan (Fabric permitting).

I'm also hoping to add a little more red to liven up the blue a bit.

I'm still working from home, and will be until at the earliest early November. We don't use video calling though so I really can wear whatever I want to. This generally is a top/shirt, with trousers and a cardigan.

Navy Nineteen - 3 tops and a cardigan

 I have continued with my navy based collection by adding some knit tops and a ponte cardigan.

The tops are all New Look 6735 with full bicep and round tummy alterations, and the neckline less scooped than the original.

The navy cardigan is from Wendy Wards sewing with knits book. I cut this and some trousers from several scraps left from other projects, hence the cuffs!

I have now made 11 pieces in my Navy collection, and it looks like this, Red seems to be the secondary colour here, though not planned, so could work with my red cardigan from SWAP.
