I had a good color plan going last year when I started planning this new wardrobe – black/charcoal, dark brown, blue-green, magenta/fuchsia, and bright white.
But I’m going to make some changes. Over the last eight months, I have not worn any brown or magenta/fuchsia clothes. I only had a few but they did not get any wear at all as I had consistently picked other clothes to wear. So those two colors will have to go. I did, however, wear red and purple (not together!) so they will be joining this group.
I did mention last time that the closet looked a bit sparse, didn’t I?
Right, not much there, even with the fabrics added. That’s OK though because I have a plan. I’m going to start small – with just six pieces. A black pant suit, three white tops, and a green pencil skirt. The jacket may end up being collarless or even a knit cardigan (or hopefully both) but for now, here is the idea:
I figure an hour or so of sewing time every day after work should yield a new garment every week or two. Then in a couple of months, I will be ready to add more colors.
Or maybe I’m just dreaming.
