I've been doing a lot of planning for my spring and summer wardrobe and I've decided on the main colors for my sewing. Most of the colors I've chosen are dark with a pop of bright colors. I've decided to base my wardrobe around two tartans:
This one is called "Bright" and it is produced by the Scottish clothing company called Ness:
And this one is called "Teal" also by Ness:
I have accessories in these tartans (so far three pairs of shoes and one purse) and also a jacket in the teal tartan.
My base fabrics are going to be navy blue, black, purple and grey. My pops of color are going to be cerise (sometimes leaning towards fushia, sometimes more of a cerise color), both lighter and brighter blue, gold, white and purple (in my opinion you can never have enough purple).
Here's what the palette looks like at the moment:
I am super excited to see what I put together for my spring and summer wardrobe and I have some fun ideas planned!
I also signed up for the Me-Made May challenge that Zoe tried out last month. For the month of March, Zoe only wore things she made (of course excluding underwear, socks, accessories, etc.) I'm signing up for the 'lite' version of the challenge which includes wearing something me-made everyday for the month of May! I think I can do it! I would go for the full challenge but I lack me-made outerwear and well, Scotland in May isn't exactly warm yet.....I look forward to documenting the challenge!
