Even though the holidays are in full swing, you might want to start thinking about some basic wardrobe pieces that will spice up your winter and transitional wardrobe.
So, there are two color palettes suggested here, built around the beautiful Pima cotton paisleys and the luxurious rayon jersey knits. And of course, we can always find an excuse to sew. Right?
|1. Golden Amber Jersey Knit, 2. Heather Brown Wool Flannel, 3.
1. Basic pencil skirt
2. A Soft, Effortless Skirt
Consider a soft, fluid skirt like Burda Style 07/2017 #108A using the Pima cotton prints. For these color palettes, I’m using
Grape/Teal Paisley Pima Cotton Shirting and Red/Maize Paisley Pima Cotton Shirting.
3. Make a Trendy Jacket
4. Beautiful Classic Blouse
5. Rayon Jerseys for Weekend Glam
And there you have it!! Five easy pieces that will mix-or-match for several looks and perfect to make for a weekend get away.
