    Just beautiful – that colour is so lovely. You could make a matching eye patch for an even more pirate look! That would be really cool for a lady pirate! xxxx

      More teal green than mint in RL. Called this after my deep purply one, which is a simplified version of the one Barbosa gave Elizabeth Swann to wear…

      Glad you like it. :)
