Announcement New Blog Series #springsewingcolorseries 2018

The Beginning

A year ago I posted my first 4 part series, 2017 Spring Colors – Tie the Trend 2 Your Sewing  in February. It was my way to deal with the cold of Wisconsin and stay sane, in a land where spring truly begins in mid-April. My selfish selflove wasn’t the only reason for the series.

Wanting to encourage the modern home sewers to embrace color, the series was brought into fruition. I know there’s a lot of people who wouldn’t dear touch certain colors with a 10 foot pole.

My goal is to keep you in the know of color trends and show how they introduce new life to your wardrobe.

    Spring color is my jam forever. Spring all year around even in the dark cold I’d rather be in a cave with a fire kind of winter. I can’t wait to see how this comes together Renata!

    So ready for Spring, but still cold here in the northeast. I’m working on a spring capsule, it took me awhile.to figure out the color palette, probably because of the four snowstorms we’ve had in the last 4 weeks! Looking for colorful inspiration!

      Hi Lisa, I second that, Spring is long overdue and I have a 1/2 Marathon in 4 weeks. It really can get depressing . The weather is really weird this year. I would love to see your Spring Capsule, I’ve never done a capsule wardrobe before. Color cheers me up, I hope my Welcome Spring post helps. My video will be up soon (Major Technical difficulties ), it’s a bit long though. I’ll work on being more efficient next week . Have a wonderful day!
