It's starting to look like a collection

There are now four pieces of the Lavender and Gray Skies Wardrobe completed.




The dress, the pants & the skirt are all from the 
gray tropical wool using my TNT patterns.



I know hanger shots stink
but they're all I've got now!


The jacket is finished and made from the wool jersey 
and sweater knit.  I'm still not in love with it...*sigh*



I've cut the pieces for the cardigan out so its up next. Thank goodness because I so need to work with some color because the gray is seriously getting to me.  So glad I've sewn the last piece in it...Yes!!!...It's starting to look like a collection...


...as always, more later!

  1. You have really inspired me to sew clothing again. I made a suede cloth skirt this morning and cut out another skirt to sew tomorrow. I check my blog list everyday so I can keep up with what you're doing and keep my juices flowing. When you have time check out my site. I make quilts.

  2. Hmmmm, maybe a scarf of some sort would tie it together and make you happier? Hmmm... one of your infinity
    ones? Just a thought... I'm loving the colors. But the one that really needs to love it, is you :)

  3. That sure is looking like a collection! But, you know, in some of your pictures the "grey" looks beige to me.

    Anyway, it's looking like a good core wardrobe!

  7. I really like your lavender jacket/cardigan. I agree with Jean that a scarf with gray and lavender tones might pull the collection all together. Personally I love scarves and pull out my 40 year collection as soon as the weather permits!

  8. Looking good, Carolyn. I can't wait to see how you 'syle' it.

  9. It's a great collection; but I understand getting tired of sewing the same fabric. What are you missing a tripod or a camera timer? I just love seeing you strut your new stuff.

  10. Do you have a piece of fabric in your stash for a shell that will pull the two colors of the jacket together? The jacket will be fine once you put your styling touches to it.

  11. Woo hoo! A collection it is! Can't wait to see the rest, and I am so impressed and inspired... A collection is something I've only dreamt of doing!

  13. It is starting to look like a collection! You are moving right along. I love the color of your gray fabric. More light gray than the typical dark gray color seen in winter wardrobes... and I still like the jacket a lot!

  14. I agree with Shams your grey looks beige, however the collection is looking great and I like the lilac cardi top.

  15. I think you're too close to the jacket to love it yet. Put it in the closet and come back to it later. I bet you like it a whole lot better. Wait till you see it styled up as only you can do. I love it!

  16. Carolyn - this collection is coming together beautifully. The pale grey drapes so well (is not a colour I can wear, I'm so pleased you can)

    You have a clear gift for shape, cut and line, and for design.

  18. I love your neutral pieces. They look very comfortable and smart and gorgeous. I just noticed that my comments must now be approved. I sure hope I haven't said something to offend you in my previous comments.

  19. Am loving your blog which I have been turning to over the past few weeks when I discovered it from Karen (didyoumakethat). Having put on weight and wearing way too much black, you have inspired me with your clothing production. How you fit work, sewing and blogging all in is an excellent example. Looking forward to reading loads more. Marian London
