I think this will most DEF motivate me to get back to my sewing machine! Thanks to Colette Patterns for putting together this fun challenge!
Welcome to the Spring Palette Challenge, a 10 week challenge for creating a mini seasonal wardrobe based around your favorite color palette for Sring 2011!
The idea is very simple. You choose an inspiring palette for Spring, then you sew a tiny wardrobe based on that palette. You choose the color palette, the number of colors, and the pieces you sew. The palette can be based around fabrics you already have (so you can use what you have), or you can do something new. The challenge will be 10 weeks long (now through the end of March). Here’s how we’ll structure it:
Week One: Define your challenge. Gather inspiration, make inspiration boards, review fabric choices, pick your palette, and decide how many garments you’d like to sew from the palette.
Week Two: Plan your projects. Choose your patterns, sketch out your ideas, and make a plan.
Weeks Three through Ten: Sew! Make your mini Spring wardrobe, and share your progress with everyone else.
Doesn’t that sound like fun?
