I was thinking this weekend about one more benefit of sewing. Because you can choose fabrics, patterns, and colors of your own liking, you can also build a cohesive wardrobe that all works together in many interchangeable ways.
How may outfits do you think you could you put together from this collection of garments:
- 4 skirts
- 1 jacket
- 2 blouses
- 1 dress
- 2 cardigans
- 1 pants
Here’s what we did.
We could have kept going, but you get the picture(s)….
S. and I have found that this concept works really well. She’s gotten loads of wear from her tweed pants and skirt and jacket, the cardigans, and her 2+2 blouses and skirts. Some of the items above are from her own closet, and we added a few samples from the studio to demonstrate that with a sophisticated color palette and a few key fabrics, you can have a lot of fun with a little girl’s wardrobe.
