That's right, peops, I've got a semblance of a plan. Despite the plethora of awesome sew-alongs and challenges, I've been avoiding making plans because I was trying to slow down my sewing output and then life just got busy.
I've said many times that I love plain clothes with pops of color. In reality, that means I like basic colors: black, white, and its lovechild, gray; and shades of red—true red and regal maroon and its flirty sister, fuschia.
But for years I've been sewing blue. Pete Campbell blue, navy blue, heathered blue. It's the fabric I could find at the thrift store. Problem is, I don't like blue all that much, unless it's denim or chambray.
So. My life and the weather is warming up, so why not some warm colors to boot? That sounds like a whole lot of sewing fun for the next weeks. Here's what could be on the table:
- White and red striped sundress
- Maroon batik sundress
- Red knit beret
- Red sailor skirt
- Red knit tank
- Fushia knit top
These are quick projects that'll work through my stash, shepherd me nicely into summer, and equip me for Me-Made-May. I actually think, since my wardrobe is so very basic, that this red-injection will breathe new life into it. Two dresses, a skirt, two tops and a hat, paired liberally with all the blacks and grays and whites I wear frequently.
Two are already cut. I'll keep sewing my little red heart out until I lose steam.
What about you? You have a favorite color that you wish was a larger part of your wardrobe?
