OK! I think I have decided what to do for the Pantone Fall color challenge. I still haven’t found that circuit fabric, but I know it’s around here somewhere. From the stock photo, the orange isn’t quite “koi”, but it will have to do. I’m hoping to do this with no money out of my pocket -just using stuff from my stash. Although I’m sure I will have to buy a couple of zippers to match. I’ve decided to go with a dress and a jacket – I hope there’s enough time for both!
Here is the dress, it’s McCall’s M6503, and I’m thinking View D.
I was delightfully surprised to see that I had a red denim in my stash that I think is really close to the samba. I’m not sure yet how it matches up to the circuit fabric yet though so I may be re-thinking it later. We’ll see. The jacket pattern I want to use is Simplicity 2056. It’s a “Suede Says”, which I have never used before. If I do go with this denim, I want to do View B. Have any of you out there ever made anything from either of these patterns? If so, what did you think?
