I’ve been thinking alot lately about how to have an effortlessly chic wardrobe, about grabbing almost anything out of my closet, in any random combination and looking nice. Of course I want as much of that wardrobe as possible to be handmade. I think I got off to a good start with planning projects for the Spring Palette Challenge, even though I only completed 2 garments for the challenge.
I’d like to complete at least 3 new garments before I go to Paris, and here is what I’m thinking of:
- another black skirt – I know I just finished that linen one with the elastic waist and I loved it when it was finished, but it looks kind of frumpy after going through the wash a few times. I also made that black rayon skirt last summer and LOVED it…to death, it died a few weeks ago and I need a replacement go to black skirt. I’m thinking something like this skirt from J. Crew. I’m going patternless on this one, something I haven’t done in a while. (honestly i haven’t gone patternless in a while for the sole reason that I’m out of pattern paper, lame, I know)
- A boatneck t-shirt with cute buttons on the shoulders! I have been eyeing this project in SEW U Homestretch since I bought the book. I have some cream jersey thats been taking up one of my bolts that would make a nice t-shirt and I have tons of buttons laying around. Also cream goes with almost everything
- A dress, probably the Lisette passport dress, maybe even a few of those in a few different colors, or one solid, one all over print and one with contrasting colors/prints, if I have the time.
