What’s next?

Now that I’ve finished my handbag entry, it’s time to start thinking seriously about the Mini-Wardrobe challenge–er, contest. My mind is pretty set on Option 3: 1 bottom, 1 dress or jumper (overdress), and 2 tops. I’ve also settled on fabrics, I think.

Ivory Linen

Ivory Linen, which will most likely be another pair of Almost Perfect Slacks.

Tan linen

Tan, open weave linen, which will be another McCall’s M5396 Jacket.

Ivory Silk

Ivory textured silk, blouseweight. I haven’t measure this one to be sure it’s enough for the pattern I have in mind: Simplicity 3918, view E.

Cotton print

(Updated photo)  Cotton print that looks great with the tan linen. This will be a shirtdress, McCall’s M4769, View C.

If it turns out that there’s not enough of the Ivory silk for my blouse, it may change my plan to Option 1: 2 bottoms and 2 tops – 1 may be a jacket. Or I may find a different top pattern.

I’m making that tan jacket, one way or another.

    My head is spinning from the rate you have ideas and actually get them done. I may as well go buy the patterns at the next sale- I know I will want them when you make them up and they will be oop by the time I get ready to start them. Your plan sounds great. I need to seriously get with the program and get busy.
