I’ve developed an obsession with two patterns the past week.
Specifically, the one made by Carolyn with pockets:
Kat Strapless Dress from Grainline studio:
I’ve actually been obsessed about Jen’s Kat dress when I first found her in burdastyle. But a recent project (to be revealed) reminded me how much i loved that curve she added below the bust.
After obsession with them for a few days, I realized they are both color block dress. I know I am pretty late to the color block party but but… I think I will make both this year, especially if i dont get distracted. They are actually perfect – one for work and one for play. But I am almost paralyzed with excitement. There are just SO MANY possible color combinations!!
Nice readers, can you suggest some color combo for me before I set about buying all sorts of fabric? For vogue pattern, I need 4 colors, and for the kat dress, I need three. I have some initial ideas: I wanted a navy-red-tan-white combo for the vogue dress, but that combo seems to look so fun on the kat dress and im not sure if it works well in a work setting. For the Kat dress, I am thinking about a purple-tulip-white combo… What do you think? Suggestions please!!!
Lastly, do you prewash the fabrics like crazy before a color block project? I am always annoyed that the darker fabric seems to dye the lighter fabric during washes post project, even if I had pre treated my fabric! It seems the worst in silk fabric. I am hoping the issue wont be too bad in cotton and linen!
