Spring Sewing

Well today it was 27 degrees when I came to work, mind you, we are suppose to be up to 60 degrees on tomorrow.  I am so ready for some color.  I have been browsing the magazines for their Spring favorites and color is popping up everywhere.  I have also been to some of my favorite web sites and checked them out as well.  I was particularly impressed with this one from Rachel Roy.  I am finding that I like her style asthestic.  It suits my age and preference for nice clean lines with just a little flair.  She is also using a lot of color.  I have to tell you, I grew up being afraid of color, I generally stuck with black, brown and navy.  I feel like color is trying to break out of me at this point.  I can't wait to get home and do a little sewing.  I am going to do a mini wardrobe for myself using Vogue 8799.  I really like the jacket the best. I am so inspired by one blog that I follow everyday, Carolyn @ Diary of a Sewing Fanatic.  I so enjoy her blog and all of the wonderful items she makes.  I am going to make a jacket, skirt, pants, dress and blouse.  I have been watching her and it just makes so much sense.  I am a very busy woman and would like to grow my wardrobe the correct way.  So thank you Carolyn for your inspiration.

Sorry I was unable to post the picture of Rachel Roy's pastels.  My computer is not cooperating at the moment.

As always, Happy Sewing.
