Question Breeding For Violet

Hi Everyone,
I have a question ( Big surprise ) to pick your brains! I have a sky cock English Budgie and last season I bred him with a cinnamon grey hen, I got five babies two hens one grey and one sky blue. Now after the first molt I have noticed that the sky blue has some faint barring across her breast and a purple undertones that are visible on both hens. Now I have read that means she has some violet in her lineage from the cock or the hen? and if I breed my violet hen with the sky blue cock should I get violets? The pic of the violet Hen is washed out she is a very pretty deep purple facing camera in pic 2.
