I’m keeping it simple this spring since I am notorious for overcommitting and falling short of my goal. To make this challenge more manageable for me, I’ll be making three garments that I need in my wardrobe: a long sleeved shirt, a pretty spring dress and basic skirt.
Sarai recently wrote about shopping through your own fabric stash instead of heading to the store. I’m doing just that for my garments! Spring in Portland is relatively cool, so I’m planning on making my Meringue skirt in a lightweight wool gabardine that’s hiding out in my closet. I recently visited New York and found some beautiful embroidered silk crepe at Mood, which will be perfect for a shirt. I have several fabrics I’m considering for my spring dress and right now I’m really leaning toward a ballet pink silk I’ve had for over a year.
The colors I chose are ones I don’t naturally gravitate towards for myself but I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new! What about you? Are you planning on using tried and true colors or are your switching it up?
