The Spring 6PAC covers February to April, and I try to sew garments in co-ordinating themes over each period to join in, though I don't always manage to make the pieces Elizabeth suggests. As I am also sewing for SWAP, the pieces either are also part of, or co-ordinate with the SWAP pieces. Here's where I am up to so far this season. The black jeans from Burda 9/2004 #106 and the red blouse from Prima Magazine June 2010 are both partly constructed and will be done before the end of April.
And these are the 6 pieces I made in January (a very productive month, before I started the new job).
I decided that this time, since I had asked Elizabeth for her advice, and she had so graciously given it I would follow it for once, instead of doing my own thing. Elizabeth has met me in person and watching the results of my sewing over quite a long period, and has an eye for such things so I think she's worth listening to.
Here's her sage wisdom for me
Well, let's see, Ruthie - you're a warm and clear colour, and "dramatic natural" as you say.
I *think* I would pick lighter neutrals for you this summer and go with a lighter ruddy/rusty brown (your hair colour) and cream. I've not seen you do much cream but I do think it would work.
I'd do a skirt with asymmetrical hem and a knit top in cream; (inner column)
A pair of brown trousers and a jacket with cool tabs and ribbons (like that cynthia rowley one) in the brown (outer column)
A t-shirt in a brown/cream print [PS I put this in here because you like prints, but I bet a brown t-shirt would be v useful]
A dress in a brown/cream/colour print
See if you can get a colour in the dress to match one of your earlier wardrobes.
Then I'd pick out/make a bunch of necklaces, belts, bags in clear warm colour combos -- turquoise, coral, etc.
Alternatively -- you have loads of clothes. Find some trousers or skirts and make a non-patterned top in a similar colour. -- you might find it really extends your wardrobe. Or concentrate on making a jacket (I know that you, like I, struggle with this).
