SWAP 2012: Angled poise - garment plan
My current thoughts are as follows:-
I am going to limit myself
to red/black/white, simple shapes, use stripes and plains. An office
wear wardrobe (My captions will read Monday at the office, Tuesday on a
work teleconference, Wednesday in a work meeting, Thursday travelling
for work etc) which doesn't try to be anything else. Sophisticated,
grown up, but still with that Ruthie twist of colour/print.
Season wise, no heavy wools, also no lightweight summer clothes. Mid weight stuff you can wear in the office pretty much all year round.
At the moment I'm thinking .....
red knit dress, possibly with a red knit cardigan in the same fabric
red/black/white/pink funky knit print dress
black and white sweater knit cardi (if I find the fabric in the stash.....)
red skirt and jacket which can be worn as a suit or split apart
black pinstripe suit - jacket, trousers, skirt and waistcoat, perhaps a simple dress though less likely
black and red print silk tie neck blouse
black and white stripe shirt
Black and white stripe tee, red/black/white/pink funky knit tee (maybe with black to eke out fabric leftovers)
this is slightly too many things but allows for changes of mind, projects going wrong etc.
