Spring Wardrobe 2016

There is a wardrobe contest over on PR, and I was wanting to join  However, since it started last month, and I only have about 6 days available to sew this month (and that’s pushing it) I’m not going to be able to finish.  I am inspired though, and am going to sew-along.  here is my plan.

Most of these pieces were inspired by the last issue of The Look on the Casual Elegance website.  Part of the plan was inspired by the rules of the contest.  But now that I'm not going to do the contest, I can do whatever I want.  I still like all the pieces I’ve chosen and am anxious to get them made.  Spring came here a lot earlier than expected.  Also, I really need new clothes and it would be great to have a cohesive grouping to take to the PR weekend in Chicago in May.  I’m hoping the weather will be nice there by then.  

So far, I only have made the madagascar tank, which I previously blogged.  I do have cut out the Ascona pants, Bianca sweater, and camel colored Madagascar.  I know how I want to place the lace on this, but I only have a half a yard and will have to piece it.  I have not yet figured out where/how I want to do that.  

Another inspiration from the last “The Look” was this piece.  I used the tank from TSW’s Ann’s top and then cropped a Bianca to make the shrug.  I really like it, but wish I had made the whole think an inch or so longer.  But still, I think it looks pretty good.

And, here are just a few more pictures from my trip to Uganda.  Happy sewing!!
