Excuse my very colourless posts lately. Especially, when you take a look at my Instagram feed, it is quite obvious how colourless my outfits and sewing projects currently are. There is a lot of black and white with just a bit of grey. But somehow I just don’t feel like donning colou, when the weather is so grey. A hint of dark red is the most colour I’m wearing right now. I’m always surprised how much the colours are changing that I tend to grab from my wardrobe each season. Pastel shades in spring, bright colours during summer time, natural shades in fall and lots of black and white in winter. So there is hope that more colours will make their way back into my wardrobe once spring rolls in. Which colours are you currently wearing? Are you adjusting to the grey weather or are you protesting with colour against it?

This black skirt is actually the shorter version of my Grande Arche skirt pattern. I’ve shown you the longer version in my last outfit. For every pattern I’m sewing lots of samples until the fit is perfect. This skirt was actually the 2nd sample. At the 1st sample the darts have been more to the sides, so that they were just peeking out under the wrap piece. For this version I had already corrected it, but if you look closely, you will see another mistake… the wrap is actually the wrong way around ? I’m actually currently working on my next pattern and when everything goes according to plan, I will be able to publish it in March. I can already reveal that it will be the pattern to this short jacket with an additional version for a short coat 🙂
