Spring Sewing Palette

Spring Sewing
Spring Sewing by Erika featuring vintage dresses

 Colette patterns created a challenge for spring, to sew pieces for a mini seasonal wardrobe and to create them in a spring palette. I accept the challenge! I'm very excited for spring ( we are having a ton of snow here in NJ) and my colors are a celebration of that. I have some of the colors in my fabric stash already, just waiting to become something fabulous for spring.

 A mini wardrobe should be pieces that can be mixed and matched. I think of it like packing for a weekend getaway, where everything should look good together. I plan to make at least one dress, another beignet Colette skirt, a blouse, and a pair of pants/shorts. Hopefully, I can get moticated and make even more. In ten weeks I should have a spring wardrobe full of exciting color!
