...even though it's still humid in Georgia, one day in the not so distant future all the leaves will start to turn. So I think it's time for me to at least start prepping for Fall.
In the past I've given Fall Sewing Plans different titles like:
- Fall Hit List
- Flipping on Over Into Fall
- Fall Dress Palazooa, and even my
- Carnival of Skirts
This year I think I'll call my plan "Fall Sweet Sixteen"
(named for Project Runway's Season 16). Corny maybe, but my dream is to stitch up 16 garments that will yield countless wonderful outfit combinations for Fall; a wardrobe capsule if you will:
- 4 Coat/Jacket/Vest or Cardigan
- 4 Tops/Tunics/Blouses or Tees
- 4 Pants
- 4 Dresses and/or Skirts
My problem with the wardrobe capsule concept however; has been being able to gather all my fabrics and patterns to set up a plan - I always stall out in this part of the process. I haven't done that this time either. Why?, because pulling out 16 fabrics/patterns would overwhelm me and I might stall out again. To that end, I am just going to start sewing. Select the first fabric and first pattern and keep pulling from the stash until all sixteen pieces are done.
I won't put any kind of pressure on myself (like a deadline) for completing this Dream List. But I'll start now and work steadily on the list. Of course the plan is subject to change; every plan needs a disclaimer. But I really would like to see this plan through.
What are your plans for starting Fall sewing???
