I still love Navy Blue.
I have had this pile of fabric sitting on this bench since before July......and it is calling to me. So, I am finally getting to it this week.
You see, liZ and I have had these grand plans for a couple of years now to sew a full "Lookbook" wardrobe for our girls. We have talked about it FOREVER and decided last Spring (before we went to LA for our fabric-shopping trip) that this Autumn/Winter was the year!!!! We were each going to make 5 or 6 coordinating outfits for our girls and put everything together "Lookbook" style.
We had grand plans to sew all summer.......but, ummmm.....needless to say, that didn't happen. We got caught up in making skirts for Skirting the Issue and other summer fun that our piles of our fabrics have been collecting dust.
BUT. NOT. ANYMORE!!!! (I think there needs to be some fanfare for that.....)
We both made our first cuts this week and we are going to pretend we are back on Project Run and Play again and sew our brains out to get them done so we'll be able to show you early next month. (I know that's a longish time---but we each have 5 or 6 outfits to do.)
My "lookbook" is made up of mostly of these fabrics--all in navy blues, grays, shades of lilacs with a splash or two of hot pink.
Which leads me to my other story. Did you all see the episode of Project Runway a couple of weeks ago where Elena comments about Dimitri's navy blue dress? And how no one wears navy blue anymore? I started laughing my head off (outloud, to myself, at midnight---embarrassing---YES!) because I based my entire "lookbook" on my love for navy blue.
So, be forewarned, you are going to be seeing NAVY BLUE. And I am hoping you all don't hate it as much as Elena does.....
