Sewing Adventures: Sewing Capsule – Choosing my Colors

Warm-ColorsSince I’m sewing/designing my own capsule wardrobe, I’ll have some fabric choices to make.

I will only focus on colors that compliment my complexion. Since my brown skin has yellow undertones, the fabric colors that I’ll be choosing, while I design and sew my capsule wardrobe, will be warm colors.

I’m really excited about embarking on this sewing adventure and while there are still pieces in my current wardrobe that I’ve sewn, it’s definitely not like it used to be where the majority of my clothing was designed by myself. In my twenties and early thirties, I was a walking advertisement for my design/sewing skills and I did take on a few clients simply by wearing what I’d created.

Interestingly enough, even though I know the colors that work best for me, I’ll be the first to admit that those aren’t always the colors I wear. However since I’m determined to design and sew my own capsule wardrobe, I’ll only be choosing the colors that compliment my complexion.

I’m thrilled about getting into sewing a bit more. Because of that, you most likely will be seeing a lot more sewing posts here. To be honest, for the past few years, I’ve wanted to get back into sewing for myself, but something always came up.  In fact, I wrote about it in February 2013, but actually sewing my own wardrobe didn’t turn into a reality. Sure, I’ve been sewing, but it’s been for others. My daughter has been top on that list and then the last two years I found myself devoting a huge chunk of time designing for our Lutheran Churches annual Passion Play.

So yes… I’ve managed to keep myself out of the sewing equation. I think it’s high time that I change that, don’t you?
