Having not participated in the Summer 6 piece collection on Stitchers Guild at all, I would like to do the Autumn one again this year.
for me Autumn doesn't start until September when school in most of the
UK starts for children, so I probably won't sew until then. My favourite
dark neutrals are dark chocolate brown or an inky navy, so I will go
one way or the other - probably with the brown.
I thrifted a
rather nice 'per una' jacket in a textured brown stripe, so may use that
as the starting point for my collection, and build other peices to work
with it. Very dark brown would work well as would cream or coral tops,
and I really want to sew all from my huge stash.
Jacket or cardigan in a dark neutral. - Thrifted 'per una' tailored Jacket
Bottom in the same dark neutral. - Dark chocolate wide leg trousers
Top in same dark neutral. - Dark chocolate knit top with self decoration e.g self fabric frill, ruching or other detailing.
Jacket/cardigan in alternative colour. - I fancy a rich coral pink, or maybe a burgundy found some burnt orange wool that could be a great winter jacket.
Top in this same alternative colour/neutral. - ditto coral or burgundy I have orange jersey in the stash too.
Print top that contains both colours/neutrals - chocolate and coral? (must check in stash) the print below just says Autumn to me!
Maybe Chocolate, Taupe and Burnt Orange? I have a great jersey leaf print......
