The Evy’s Tree Chevron

So today was another day of designing in the studio. All those ideas that have been swirling around in my head for a while are now coming together. It is fun to see things in your mind become reality.

I cannot, however, take credit for this one. My assistant {even though she lives in Stockton, she will always be an assistant to me, ha} Sarah, texted me the other day and said, “Why not do a hoodie based off the whole Chevron print craze?” I immediately texted her back… “I LOVE it!!”

Although I can’t say I have gone beserk over the pattern myself, I do admire it and find it very fun, whimsical, classic and funky, all wrapped up in one. I especially like the color element. For a person who decorates mainly in white, I find color intriguing and exciting, shocking I know. :)

So I needed some inspiration…Pinterest to the rescue!! You can see my inspiration board HERE. Overall, I really loved the prints where the colors bled into each other and weren’t perfectly symmetrical, but almost seemed to carry from one color to the next. I knew I didn’t want our Chevron to really LOOK like a Chevron. I wanted it curve and glide, but still prominent colors and shape. So here’s what I came up with….

A red brown pullover from AA called “Truffle” with its hood cut off. The colors are perfect Spring colors, bright and vibrant.

The stripes are a bit crooked and off…my way of “bleeding” the colors

And the edges tuck nicely under the armpit

And the cuffs along with two inches of the sleeves have been cut off and scrunchy pink fabric is added. The sleeves are supposed to look bunched up on your wrists. So much fun!

Huge surprise for me as this one is a little out of my character, but I had a blast making this one! I do plan on offering in other hoodie colors…any requests?

Oh…and ever wonder what my studio looks like after a day of “creating”?

WOW!!

Oh, and that metal thing isn’t a walker…its a chair Brandon brought me to replace the one that broke the other day. It’s not staying long, don’t worry. ha.

Big hugs everyone, and don’t forget to pin this one!! xoxo

    I am truly truly excited about this one!!

    I think something in blue or green for the base color would be nice.

    And maybe black/white/grey for us minimalists. :)

    So cute!

    Amber added a suggestion, so can I? Narrow ruffles in a chevron pattern– 3 or 5 colors. :o)

    I second what the other Kelley said, ruffles in a chevron pattern would be amazing! This one is awesome, but I’m a ruffle girl. Lol!
