This has been up on the Pantone website for a while but I've been thinking about my fall wardrobe (and SWAP) and what colors to use. I think I've decided on a grey/purple wardrobe. I won a few BWOF on eBay and the purple/grey combo really caught me eye. I won 08/2006, 11/2006, and 06/2004. I am excited to increase my stash of Burdas. There is so much in each issue. Of the two issues I have (03/2008 and 05/2008), there are lots of possibilities for a fall wardrobe. Now with my new subscription and these older magazines I will be totally set. I am contemplating going through my stash of Big 4 patterns and getting rid of most of them. They just don't fit as well. Has anyone else gone totally (or almost totally) BWOF? I still really like Jalie and some of the KwikSews but McCalls, Butterick, and Simplicity just don't do it for me anymore.
These are both out of the 11/2006 magazine and I love the deep colors. I may even do grey, deep purple, and a blue. I think those would look nice. I'm trying to use more blue since you guys always comment on how blue looks nice with my eyes. It is a color I never really wear much of but if it looks nice, why not?
I especially love this skirt. There is a review on PR but the picture link is broken so I don't know what it looks like on a normal person. I like the higher waist and the back slit. There is a version of this skirt in the magazine with a front thigh slit. I like that one too but this is probably more appropriate for my 7th grade classroom.
