Sewing for your Style Pt II plus Georgia Sewalong

Following on from the post I did a couple of weeks about about sewing for your style I wrote up a list of the types of things which I generally look for when buying clothes on the highstreet. I think it will be useful to have this when thinking about picking up fabric for future makes, as I am more likely to make something which I would actually consider buying.


My style list goes as follows:

Colours:
  • Blacks
  • Greys
  • Browns
  • Pinks
  • Reds
  • Turqouise
  • Black & White
  • Cream
Patterns:
  • Leopard
  • Zebra
  • Stripes
  • Hearts
  • Stars
  • Polka Dot
  • Tartan
  • Chevrons
Fabrics:
  • Jersey
  • Velvet
  • Lace
  • Tulle
  • Stretch
  • Cotton
  • Denim
 I have also decided to join in the upcoming sewalong for the Georgie dress by By Hand London which is starting on Monday so I have my pattern and am raring to go.

I am thinking/hoping that that lips fabric might be perfect for this dress. It has some stretch which will be great for the fitted pattern, but also has an awesome bold print to add a little bit of personal character! Plus, I have seen quiet a few items on the highstreet lately in lips print, so check me out, bang on trend!
