Bitter Orange

Bitter Orange

The collarless coat “Bitter Orange” is a ¾ length pieced flare with set in sleeves and side seam pockets. I use a variety of orange prints and solids to make tilted four-patch blocks, which I then set in a straight line and bordered with a thin narrow strip and a long wedge. Using narrow strips that I random pieced, I created a 3-inch border. It is lined with a large cotton print, bound off at the hemline and accented with large pieced covered buttons and faux bound buttonholes.
