Sewing Plan for 2012

Standard

After reading the inspiring Colette Sewing Handbook http://www.amazon.com/Colette-Sewing-Handbook-Techniques-Seamstress/dp/1440215456/ I decided to actually analyze my wardrobe, and to plan out what items I should sew, instead of buying random fabric and patterns. Instead of making pieces that will not ever get worn, I want to focus on wardrobe basics that I will wear every week. I decided that I like bold and graphic styles with simple silhouettes. The color palette that I’ve chosen for this year is:

Right now, I’m working on my first pair of jeans ever, and they are self drafted from the book
Building Patterns the Architecture of Women’s Clothing
