wardrobe edit: pink flamingo

Robert Kaufman Fabrics is probably best known for their Kona Cottons, which are used by many of us because they come in a wonderful range of solid colors, three hundred and three to be exact! Every year they do a Kona color of the year. I don’t know how long Robert Kaufman has been doing a Kona color of the year, but last year the Kona color was a yellow named Highlight.

The 2017 Kona color of the year is Pink Flamingo and it has been described as a vibrant, clean, and perfectly playful pink. It translates easily to girl’s fashion and therefore sewing for girls.

I’ve put together some examples on how to add some Pink Flamingo to girl Oliver + S patterns to get your creative juices flowing.
