In Season 2, we meet Kate and Edwina Sharma, half sisters who have South Asian heritage, something which show creator Chris Van Dusen and producer Shona Rhimes draw influence from and make reference to throughout the show. Younger sister Edwina calls her sister ‘Didi’ which is a Hindi word of affection as respect, often from a younger to older sister. Bon, used by Kate to Edwina is a Bengali word, also meaning sister, and used from older to younger. The show obviously draws on South Asian colours and styles to influence the clothes worn by the women. We also see the traditional ritual of Haldi take place, a pre-marriage ceremony where a vibrant yellow turmeric paste is applied to the skin to essentially cleanse the bride (and groom) and also represents prosperity for the couple beginning their new life together. I’ve attempted to capture that vibrant yellow along with soft pinks worn by Edwina as well as jades and purples seen on Kate.

All yarns are hand dyed by Verity in our smoke free, cat friendly home. Professional dyes are used and skeins are fully rinsed prior to despatch however a small amount of loose dye may come away in the first wash. We advise washing all handmade items separately in cold water with NO wool wash as this can loosen the bonds between dye and yarn. All items should be dried flat. We do not advise using the washing machine, even on a wool programme, to wash any hand dyed yarns or items made with them.
