Option 1: Doing it Designer,
An exploration of Designer Patterns in a corporate casual lifestyle...
These are the patterns I was thinking about:
|Cap Sleeve Top from Loes Hinse, V neck option|
|Paco Peralta Cowl neck top, or some variation of this idea (but I have this pattern, so I want to try it)|
|Style Arc Kaite Top|
|Paco Peralta Cowl top|
|Style Arc Skinny Jeans|
|Bilbao Pants, narrow leg|
|Style Arc Linda Pant|
Linking Piece, coat:
|Linking Piece: Paco Peralta Dolman Coat, which looks exactly like this inpiration piece!|
I've made wearable muslins of the Loes Hinse patterns, and both of them are a hit. The Linda Pants, and the Kaite top also have been a hit, and are totally going to work in some way. But, I haven't tackled the Paco patterns yet, and the coat kind of intimidates me a little.
For colours, I've been thinking of red, black and grey, with a plum coat, since I have plum coating fabric in the basement fabric store.
Option 2: Suitcase Sally
An exploration of patterns , inspired by Eileen:
A lot of the same patterns, but different fabrics, and a totally different vibe. Teal and Black Rayon Lycra, tiger print blue/black/white knit, some black ponte, and some dark grey stretch denim. The left side is for work, the right for play, and the goal is to have it all fit in a carry on suitcase, to go for a quick trip. Again, I have all the fabric in my basement, washed and ready to go. I just have to start.
And, I can't decide! Argh!
