Fall Palette 2011 & Plan


I'm not sure about following along the chalenge at Colette's pattern since I do not have much time to sew... But I have a birthday resolution ; to take more care into my appearance and affirm my tastes by going a little retro with luxurious fabrics in colors that I love. I plan to sew some pieces to achieve that and having a little ME time in my frantic life of full time stay at home mom, part-time graduate student, part-time engineer working from home...

Almost all of my fabrics purchases this year are within a color palette that I love : fuchsia/raspberry, pink, grey, black and white.

Fall Palette 2011

  1. Raspberry mystery 6y
  2. polka dots blue 3y  (not in palette, but same drape as the next two. Cheap, so wearable muslin for me!)
  3. pink mystery 4y
  4. raspberry/pink/grey/black/white poly charmeuse 3y
  5. Jacob black ?y
  6. grey/silver linen look mystery ?y
  7. wool blend b&w herringbone ?y
  8. wool blend pink/raspberry twill ?y
  9. Grey stretch tiny corduroy ?y
  10. Lining : fuchsia with black leaves 4y
  11. Lining : Bemberg grey twill 3y
  12. Lining : Bemberg pink twill 2y
