After making my moodboard I started to go through my patterns for some inspiration, and see if I could match any up with the fabrics I have.
So for the patterns I have the following as possible candidates.
My tried and tested blouse patterns, although it's my birthday next month and I have asked for some Colette Patterns, so fingers crossed for a Violet or a Sencha to join the above!
I need some new skirts for work, so the Butterick and the 1970's McCalls are ideal, I also really want to make another playsuit but I'm not sure about this pattern? I want more of a 1940's style like the ones Q's Daydream has just debuted here.
A lot of options for dresses, although that didn't really come as much of a surprise to me! The vintage vogue pattern is actually intended for a 1950's theme night I'm attending in July.
Now obviously, I'm not intending on making everything listed above, this is of course just an idea of what I could make.
Now for fabrics -
Top: Embroidered Silk, very small amount, maybe 1/2 metre?
Middle: Butchers Stripe Heavy Cotton, again very small amount, possibly 1/2 metre
Bottom: Floral Georgette, 4 metres
Top: Polyester Crepe with Orange/Blue squares, 3 metres
Middle: African Wax Cotton, 2 metres (I think?!)
Bottom: Pheasant Printed Georgette, 3 metres
Drill Cotton, roughly 2 metres.
Polyester Suiting (I believe?), 2 metres.
At this moment I own nothing that's of a khaki/beige colour so this is what I'm keeping an eye out for next.
Any suggestions on what would work well together?
