Of course, I had a hard time narrowing down my colors. I thought for sure I needed more staples in black, white, and navy, but I want more greens, yellows, and blues in my wardrobe. Hot pink and red are also favorites so I want to incorporate them too!

I've made a list of a few things I'd like to add to my wardrobe this summer. My plate is pretty full, so who knows what I'll actually be able to get to, but I'd like to sew some of the following, and I could use them in my wardrobe:
Loose fitting shirts
Full Skirts (especially a chambray one!)
A vintage style one piece swim suit
A shirt dress
And I couldn't find an actual photograph of this, but a two piece wiggle dress
Wish me luck!

When it comes to beauty and hair, I want something pretty and classic, yet easy and minimal. I'm enjoying having long hair right now and intend on keeping it. Someday when my life calms down I want to try bangs! Yes, big Zooey Deschanel ones! Probably when I do it'll be out of style!
I love prints! They can add a lot of interest to clothes.
I am such a sucker for a fun novelty print! They can be really fun on kids clothes but they can also look really busy and overwhelming on an adult, in my opinion. I feel kind of childish when I wear them, depending on the print. Also, too many novelty prints can be hard to match with other clothes.
I do think that less is more and a good polka dot may look more plain on a bolt but it is adorable once made into a garment!
Same goes for stripes (and yes, I am including a chevron as a sort of "stripe")!
Plaids are another favorite! I think the tartans look great on fall/winter clothing and the gingham looks great in spring/summer apparel, but again, that's just my opinion.
I love love love florals! They are so feminine and I can't believe I haven't incorporated more of them into my sewing! That needs to change.
I did leave out geometric prints. I think they can look nice on others but I really don't like them on myself. It probably has something to do with my aversion to math!
I love this wardrobe architect project and I am really starting to get inspired! This slow, week by week set of posts helps me think about what I really want to do, even when I don't exactly keep a weekly pace up! ;)

Following the outline of this post I took into account all the colors I like wearing that would look good with my skin tone.
The first line are the neutrals I love. This made me realize I should say good bye to my brown skirt I never wear!
I am not an expert but I would say that these colors could be considered "near neutrals"
Oh glorious pinks and reds, you are the accent colors I love!
I'm excited to go through this process and figure out how to improve my sewing/wardrobe!
