I just found out about this summer capsule sew-a-long and I am going to try and participate.
I have a wardrobe staple of 3 dresses, 2 yoga pants, and 2 t-shirts. My colors are black, gray, and navy that I wear all of the time. My two t-shirts are fuschia and royal blue. I am very boring it seems! It is so much easier to sew pretty dresses for girls!
I first have to find out what my body type is so that I can find out what styles will suit me. I am trying to figure out if I am a plain straight/rectangle or if I have an hourglass figure…ha!
I then have to figure out what colors I lean towards (or what I would like to wear more). I went to design seeds at designseeds.com to find some color combinations I feel comfortable with. Here is what I found that I like:
I am immediately drawn to the blues and creams. The fig pallette is my first choice of what I would like to base my wardrobe on. I would like to also include an olive and a plum color. Those colors would be pretty for a summer wardrobe!
I will now have to think about some wardrobe basics:
…and 9 pairs of shoes (Right now I will be happy with just 2 pairs)
I will now have to go and figure out what patterns I want to sew up…
Here are some useful links to find out what this is all about and how to get started:
