Last month Fabric Mart Fabrics issued a challenge to use all pieces from one bundle into a garment or collection of garments. I thought it sounded fun to try, so I ordered a small bundle. This is what I got:
I changed my mind several times about what I would make and what I would have go with each piece. Originally, the brown was going to be a pair of pants, but in the end I decided the fabric might drag against itself. If I were to do it all again, I would probably use the multistripe to do the finishing on the jacket and maybe some trim. Then all of the garments would be one complete outfit. But, I'm glad I made that top separate, as I can see wearing it with other things. I've been wearing it with black pants.
This is what I ended up with! (scroll down for better picture)
I really like how the garments work together, even though I would not have bought these fabrics to go together. It was a fun challenge to break up my normal sewing routine.
Here are links to more information about each fabric used and the garment:
Dark Brown Raincoat fabric - TSW Tremont Jacket
Black and White Stripe - Pattern Review Ina Skirt
Multi stripe crinkle georgette - Cutting Line Designs Light and Shadow remake
Lavender burnout print knit - Vogue 8636 Marcy Tilton Raglan Tee
I'm not happy with the collage picture above since it is not clear. I tried doing it by making a card in iphoto and then taking a screen shot of the photo. I'm going to try to do it over by using keynote.
Here is a better picture!
