I'll be centering it around this pale blue RTW sweater that I've had for ages--it's not part of the 6 Pac . . . it's the extra RTW piece in my unconventional 6 pac:
I'm not normally mad about blues or pastels, but I really like this sweater in this color! Go figure!
My colors will be blue and yellow. I won't be sewing any bottoms as the dresses are stand alones and I'll be wearing the tops with jeans that I already have.
So far, I've decided to make these pieces:
New Look 6051--the only knit that I'm planning to sew:
OOP McCalls 5042--woven cotton--I'll probably change the neckline:
New Look 6002 in a yellow monochromatic printed cotton pique--I don't like the bottom pleats so I'll be sewing it with a darted fitted bottom:
That's all I've settled on so far. Hopefully, I'll be able to find something from Mad Men in a yellow or blue that can be incorporated into this 6 pac--I'd love to sew either a top or a dress in a large yellow gingham check!
I will probably sew OOP Simplicity 4182 as my topper/jacket, but haven't decided on the color, yet:
I will probably sew the jacket last.
I'll do a concept board later and will put it in the side bar.
If you don't have it in you to sew a full SWAP, go sew yourself a 6 pac, like me, and make this day a good one! :-)
