I've been sewing a variation of a six pack for about three years now, and I can say that the only problem with it is that I am getting tired of my base colour. When I run out of clean clothes, what is left in the closet is all black. Or dark grey, or plum. But, mostly it is black.
It makes getting dressed easier--since it all goes together.
It makes doing laundry easier--it is all the same colour, and works in the washing machine.
It makes sewing new stuff easier--black thread, here I come.
But, I can see how someone would get tired of a colour. Even though it is practical, and I like it, and it all goes together, I am getting a little tired of black. It is just so...dark. This morning, I tried to force myself to branch out, to lighten up a little. That resulted in a dark plum outfit (top, pants, runa). Which is still lighter than black, but it is dark. Then, I made a pull on knit skirt, of a black rib knit. It used the stash, and is comfortable, but...it is black.
I really think I need to branch out and lighten up a lot. Maybe a little teal, or green, or grey for summer time is in order. I may have to go shopping.
Pictures of my summer 6 pack this week, I promise.
