A lily by any other hue

As you all may have gathered already I have been a little obsessed with Waterlily lately and spent ages agonising over which colour to pick for mine! I wanted to pick something other than the glowing Pom green to show a different version than  the beautiful one in Pompom Quarterly.

I’d thought I’d share part of my decision making process with you if any of you are having the same dilemma! I have a bit of a habit of mocking up the garment in Photoshop and playing with the hue/saturation until something strikes me as ‘right’.

Here were my choices:

I had to forcibly steer myself away from the greys and compromised by picking the lightest of the 3 – the featured image in Vestige – which has a shimmer of blue in it, as I think it will look great against olive skin in the summer!

Which one is your favourite?
