These little posts, the mid-week updates, are meant to provoke your thinking. In providing examples of what I want to do I hope to tickle your creative juices to consider options that otherwise may not have passed your radar. I am tossing ideas around again. My anchor piece for the first wardrobe block might be a jacket or it might be a simple long sleeve dress.
|A sweater dress may be stretching the season for this first block but I have some sweater knits in the closet that need a purpose.|
|This style of dress is always popular from this retailer. While I would likely not use a print like this, a knit fabric is well suited for the cut and drape here. |
|This is a three season dress for me. The fitting lines of this dress
might be just what I am looking for. While this is a popular color right
now I do not have this in my stash and I am trying to sew from that
collection of fabric.|
I will sketch these out in my Journal. So many ideas, so little time :)
