Autumn Safari

For this Safari outfit, I used printed rayon for the shirt and sueded rayon for the shorts, collar, placket and cuffs of the shirt. The perfect "Earth Primitives" buttons are from JJ Handworks.

Jane's Festive Safari Shirt

For this outfit, I used two packets of fat quarters (6 different fabrics in each) from JJ Handworks. I cut 8 of the fat quarters first into strips (5-½ " x 18"), sewed them together alternating prints.

I then cut the yellow striped fat quarter fabric into 1/2" wide strips that I ran through my 1/4" bias tape maker (making a 1/4" turned trim). This I sewed down the center of the printed strips. Then I sewed alternating rows of the printed fabrics. Press well, and cut out your pattern!

The collar and placket is made from the last 2 fat quarters, with a "tip" of yellow stripe on collar points. The perfect "Jelly Beans" buttons are also from JJ Handworks.

This Safari Shirt was made by Judy Fintz with a cotton southwest print and black silk dupioni accents. Coordinating Gecko and Kokopelli buttons compliment the cotton print fabric.
