While I wait for the blazing flash of inspiration that will show me what to do with the ugly fabric, I’m starting work on my Spring capsule. Tentatively, the title is “Miss Daisy meets Microsoft” (translated that means “GRITS with a little geek nerd mixed in“).
Initially I planned to use periwinkle, mint, and putty. When all the peri fabrics sprang together and bowled me over, I realized that I might have to rethink that. At this point, of course, I still don’t have all that I’ll need, but it’s a good start. These eight will blend with a lot of the garments in my closet (the 3 or 4 that I can still get into, that is)!
I suggest a warning label for the recumbents:
But I digress…
The fabrics that I’ve chosen up to now are mostly cottons, which suit summertime here quite well. I’m hoping to choose my complementary colors from the stripe.
Cotton Batik for blouse
Cotton Denim for Jeans-style jacket
Cotton Floral for blouse.
Cotton Stripe for blouse
Polyester(?) floral for blouse
Lavendar Linen for Skirt or Pants
Polyester Geometric for blouse
The batik has already been cut in a style similar to New Look 6407–the view with the short sleeves and mandarin collar.
