Have you heard about the Colette Patterns Spring Palette Challenge? Colette's Sarai has come up with one of the most fun sewing challenges yet. Over ten weeks, participants are going to devise a palette for their Spring wardrobe, gather inspiration and ideas, then - of course - madly sew away! The official post is here and a ton of other sewers have already posted their inspiration boards, palettes, and plans in Colette's new forum.
For my part, my final palette is based on the 2009 BBC version of Jane Austen's Emma. I'm something of a BBC (and Austen) groupie and I've lusted after Romola Garai's costumes ever since seeing this lush, delightful tale of Austen's most mischievous heroine. It also doesn't hurt that I have the same coloring as Garai, so they're colors I adore anyway.
All those pinks and whites and yellows just make me want to romp through a field of English daffodils in empire-waist dresses. Alas, I will settle for Texas wildflowers & the same amazing palette. :)
