Just Imagine

Just imagining is all that I am doing at present. Still in that dream stage of sewing new clothes. The first two basics are done, pants and a skirt in a carmel or camel colour. Really comfortable to wear in a poly, rayon, lycra combo of some sort.

Next is to name my collection: Carmel twist.

At left, two stretch lace fabrics for short or long sleeve T shirts. For the underneath coverup, a couple of jersey knits with lycra, probably sleeveless tops that can be worn alone or underneath the lace Tees.

The new pants are sandwiched inbetween a couple of jersey printed knits also with lycra. More tops, haven't decided on the style.
The lace knits shown with the pants. I have a few more fabrics that could work with this combo, but they are more wintery, so I'll wait till next year to add them to the mix. If this all works out I will have 2 bottoms, 6 tops.
Time to start tweeking the patterns and cut something out.

To fit the sewing with a plan. I'd need a couple more pieces, a jacket, another pair of pants.

I think it is so cool that you are sewing your own clothes. The fabrics look gorgeous.

what an intriguing way to design a wardrobe... I know it seems obvious to those who sew, but it is just really neat to start with a bunch of fabrics you like together and go from there.
