Weekly Design: The White Rabbit Zip Up

Hello all, I’d like to introduce to you one of my husband’s favorite candies:
{My husband found this picture online somewhere, so can’t remember where, so if you find the source please tell me! ha}
It’s called White Rabbit and it is a creamy milk taffy like candy that is covered with a sticky rice wax paper that is edible…which is very hard for me grasp and I usually strip the paper off the candy before eating, which Brandon hates! ha.¬†You can read more about this popular candy HERE.
I think I have mentioned before, but my husband is a quarter Fillipino, his dad is half and was born and raised for most of his early years in Hawaii. My Father in Law is a lover of all ethnic foods, but especially any Asian and whenever the Miraflor family gets together, we have to have rice with everything…yes, even spaghetti. I’m not joking. I often have to apologize to my husband, as when he was a kid, the rice cooker never left the counter, it just got cleaned out and refilled every day, but our rice cooker makes an entrance into our kitchen once, maybe twice a month if its lucky. That should explain to you my feelings about rice. :)
ANWAY, I digress…
So Brandon grew up shopping at Asian grocery markets and The White Rabbit candy was his favorite candy to bring home. So it makes sense that when I showed him this week’s design, he said it HAD to be named The White Rabbit…
I have to be honest, I am on a huge navy blue kick. I am usually a black person, but for some reason I can’t enough of navy lately. So I am in LOVE with this zip up.
A while back I found this gorgeous jersey knit material. It has colorful flowers and shapes on it and I could not even think about cutting it into strips to use it for a zip up or a brilla since I loved the pattern so much. But the other day I took another look at it and decided to give it a shot. The jersey fabric has a rolled edge, which is unusual for me, however, I wanted this hoodie to have a more “dressed up” feel making the usual raw edges inappropriate. In my mind, I see this zip up being worn with a pencil skirt and some fun, colorful heels. I just love how the ruffles cascade and almost stick up on the shoulder, like a lovely brooch that carries down the length of the jacket.
I do have quite a bit of this material, but I am only going to offer one size run on Monday because I only have a little bit of the material cut and edged. I am thinking about doing this in a Brilla style too, maybe for the website launch! I also plan on doing a mini…more info on that one next week. :)
I will list The White Rabbit Zip Up via a paypal link right here on the blog, Monday evening at 6PM PST.
The White Rabbit will ship within one week of payment. Thanks!
See you all then!!
