Silk linen in Fuschia, Silk dupioni jacquard in fuschia and orange, and
Silk chiffon burnout in fuschia and orange.
I'm going to participate in the capsule wardrobe sew-along contest on Stitchers Guild beginning June 1 - making a jacket, dress, top and bottom (I think a skirt but maybe capri) using the above fabrics.
See Carolyn's blog for details on rules.
I have ideas for the jacket - know that it will be short, and easy to wear. Not oversize.
I'm thinking the dress will be the sheath I like so much. The chiffon may end up a blouse, may end up a skirt - maybe a skirt and top. I have to figure it out.
With nothing so much as time on my hands, I've been planning projects right and left.
I'm sitting in my little nest I've built in the last 2 weeks in the corner of my living room - surrounded by patterns, fabric swatches, yarn and knitting books, some hand stitching projects, and many magazines. It's an easy recipe for building planned projects and dreaming up garments. And schemes.
Today I picked up this magazine
The above mentioned contest requires an accessory. I think I might bead something.
oh....you're thinking there is enough on my plate? Hush!
I know I have sewing to finish from the SWAP wardrobes - lots. My decision at this point is to finish the 4 garments on my machine table at the moment, then proceed by making 1 - 2 garments per month to add to it.
I'm going to get some sewing done beginning this week, beginning tomorrow.
June 1 I'll begin on sewing 4 garments for me.
And, stay tuned tomorrow, Tuesday at the latest for the other project/scheme I'm hatching.
Trying to get my ducks in a row right now, before I go public with it. Suffice it to say, you'll have an opportunity to participate.
The End of an Era...
