I absolutely love the colour palette challenges that Colette patterns hosts every season!
I used the colourlovers website that Sarai from Colette patterns suggested. It's great because you can actually upload photos and it takes a sample of the colours in the photo!
I actually have three colour palettes for Autumn. I just couldn't decide which I liked best--so I'm going to use all these colours and create three different streams for my sewing! The first one is composed of greens and pinks. These are often associated with Spring but I think these would look lovely for Autumn as well.
If you've been following my sewing for awhile, you know that cerise or a hotter shade of pink is a bit of a staple.

Gucci 2011 RTW collection (I LOVE the colours in this collection), 6. Alexander McQueen 2006 collection, 7. Ness 'Northern Lights' tartan, 8. Chocolate and wine colour palette--my own creation.
My next set of colours incorporates teal--a colour I hope to be sewing a lot of this Autumn. I want to use my 'Mrs Peacock' teal tweed skirt as a basis for several outfits.
The third set of colours is inspired by reds, pinks and chocolate browns. I call this my 'chocolate and wine' colour palette. I love it (almost as I love chocolates and wine)! It incorporates a lot of red tartan as inspiration.
What about you? What are your Autumn sewing colours? Are any of these colours in your plans?
