I tried to pick out fabrics that 'go together' and then patterns that go with them AND each other - NOT an easy task ! Also, my mind's eye just doesn't seem to see a finished product very well. I can't picture something done, until it's done. Sewing a cohesive wardrobe is going to be hit or miss.
These are the fabrics I picked...from left to right:
- Blue cotton twill (remnant from Fabricville, it's almost a full 2 meters and is pretty lightweight)
- Grey interlock knit (from fabric.com, just over 1 meter) - my monitor makes it look kind of mauve but it's definitely grey
- Black/Blue Flower Print, 100% poly (Fabricville, 3.3 meters)
- Black stretch twill (FabricMart mystery bundle, 3.5 meters, a somewhat heavier weight than the blue twill)
And here's a storyboard -
There's only enough grey knit to make one of the t-shirts. None of the other knits I have 'go' with this grouping, so it's got to be the grey, and I've have to pick one tee.
Colorwise, I think both tops would go with the 3 skirts.
But do the patterns ?
Any opinions are very welcome.
