After my Wardrobe planning post on Saturday, I had a few comments and emails about a Basic Wardrobe Sewalong. This is a great ideas, so I thought I would put the idea out there and get this sewalong started.
Here is the list from via The Nate Berkus Show of 12 items for the winter must haves in your wardrobe
1. Slim Black Pants (on the segment they called these ponte pants)
2. Dark Skinny Jeans
3. White button shirt
4. Black turtleneck\
5.Camel - khaki skirt
6.Tie Waist Sweater
7. Puffy Vest
8. Faux Fur Vest\
9. Black Dress
10. Riding Boot
11. Black patent pumps
Now we cannot sew 10, 11 and 12 but we can sew the first 9, so let's get started with those items.
Today, go into your closet. See what items you do and don't have from these 8 basic wardrobe garments. If you do have a white shirt, is it time to make another one? Do you need a second one?
My plan is post through the list with pattern suggestions and fabric suggestions. Feel free in the comments to add other pattern suggestions. If we get through this and are having fun maybe we will move onto the other items to add to your basic wardrobe for 30 days of mix and match outfits.
Post a comment if you are interested in doing this, post on your blog and link back to this post so others can participate and let's get our basic wardrobes updated and ready!
