After a lot of planning, thinking and scheming, I finally decided upon these six pieces to make for my new spring wardrobe. I stuck a rather neutral palette of greys and blues that will easily fit into my existing wardrobe. The selections are on trend, inspired by my Spring Wardrobe inspiration board
and fill in the gaps of my current wardrobe. Oh, and I'm only using stash fabrics!!!
Here are the details (with links):
1. Salmon Silk Blouse
Pattern: Self Drafted
I'm planning to wing it on this one and make a blouse similar to the one I made for this outfit
2. Slouch Top
Pattern: DIY Couture
I got the book DIY Couture
for Christmas this last year. I haven't made anything from it yet but I'm pretty excited to do so.
3. Navy Knit Top
Pattern: Drape Drape 2, No. 4
I have Drape Drape 2 in Japanese so wish me luck with this one. :) You can find it here
4. Pencil Skirt
Even though there are lots of pencil skirt patterns out there, I have yet to find a favorite. I'm planning to use Simplicity 4047 (now out of print) for this one.
5. Pleated Pants
This is probably my most "out there" choice 'cause you know when do you really need knit pleated pants? But between Vogue V8657
and all the pants in Drape Drape 3
, I just really, really want to make some for myself.
6. Pleated Mid-Calf Skirt
I was totally inspired by this photo
to make this skirt. I'm still debating a little bit whether to make a gathered waistband or a pleated one.
I'm really looking forward to making these new clothes. Keep checking back in to see how I'm coming along! Are you making any new clothes for spring?
