Plans Change

IMG_6926 (2)

Look who’s breaking all the fashion rules…wearing white after Labour Day! That’s not really a rule anymore is it? I love a white and grey color palette and I plan to wear it through the fall as long as I can baring I have no major coffee or red wine mishaps while wearing these jeans.

Cali Fabrics seems to carry lots of lovely knits that I am always drawn to. So again I choose a knit, this time a grey and white ribbed sweater knit.

I had originally planned to make the Blackwood cardigan but when my fabric arrived, it was thinner that I had thought it would be and so I thought that I would make a t-shirt dress. After some thought, I went back to my cardigan plan because I had this outfit in mind and knew that it would fit well into my wardrobe. Look at me being all practical!

I also ordered a lovely Robert Kaufman rayon in two colors, grey and indigo blue. I planned to use the grey to make a sleeveless dress to wear with the grey and white cardigan. Again…change of plans. I thought that it would serve me better as a top and I choose M7093. I have had this pattern in my stash since it first came out and I’m sorry I hadn’t made it up sooner. It’s a great little gem and came together very quickly. I had the white lace in my stash leftover from another dress for the sleeves. I love the fresh feel it adds to this top.

I have yet to sew up the “Indigo” rayon because it was much lighter in color than I had expected. There is hardly a difference between the grey and the blue so I plan to dye it darker. I wasn’t expecting to have to do that but oh well…. What do I plan to make with it? Not sure. But then again why make too many plans when I’ll probably change them anyway!

Anyone else like me? Do you make plans for your fabric purchases only to change your mind a few times before settling on a pattern? I’m sure that I’m not the only one…
