What do you think of when you think of pink? Baby girls? Sugar and spice and everything nice? Or maybe finishing a seam edge (I know all you sewers know what I'm talking about)
It seems most people aren't neutral about this color. They like it or they don't. Period. I know my friend Stacey likes pink as she's still
I'm in the "I like pink" camp. So I was thrilled to see the color pink featured in the latest catalog mailing from Nieman Marcus.
The fashions in that catalog were spring fashions, and I'm certainly not prepared to begin spring sewing. Not knowing we have at least two and a half more months of cold weather to endure.
Instead I pulled out a pastel pink wool crepe purchased two years ago from Fabric Mart Fabrics. A beautiful piece of wool that I had bought with the intention of creating a jacket. However once I saw how pale the color was I realized I'd never be able to pull that off near my face.
However, knowing that pink works with black, grey and brown, and owning jackets and tops in all of those colors, I sewed myself another winter skirt from the Nov. 2008 issue of Burda World of Fashion (BWOF).
The skirt is 110A and is described as a fully lined four-gore skirt with cut-in-one fluttery hem godets.
A review over at PR is forthcoming. In the meantime, include Whether it be salmon, coral, hot pink, fuschia, blush, or rose, my spring wardrobe will include the softer side of red. Pin It
