These all come from one stitch at a time.
I also love to train my horse, and he came to me with solid training on the ground. Even with that, I added my own stamp one step at a time. It has been and will continue to be, a long-term project made up of many steps. Yesterday, though, I was riding with a group of friends and one friend said "Whoa Nick, look at YOU" as he stopped, backed up and then cantered from a halt.
One step at a time.
A few weeks ago I decided to make a capsule wardrobe using olive, brown and rust. I started with some olive rayon and made some pants and then a loose fitting shell. It looked a bit like algae all together!! SW MixIt tank and V9067
So I found some bold brown striped fabric in stash and made a tank top. Nice contrast, yes?

I was getting tired of tops and thought to make a long cardigan which current fashion is calling a duster. I have some nice rust knit but decided to use a novelty knit to "muslin" the pattern. A few days later I had this sparkly number waiting for topstitching and hems- Pamela's Patterns tank and cardi combo
OMG, this is going to work with some of these pieces also.
The capsule needed more pants or a skirt so I grabbed some olive print knit from stash and gave it a squeeze. It felt really spongy-more like activewear- so I decided to make leggings or slim pants. But I wanted a new tee shirt to counteract the sparkly number above so I used my self-draft pattern and whipped up a new tee. Pants are next, I promise.
When I am done, I'll have 10 + items, with the ability to make lots of combinations. Rust cardi, olive slim pants, olive leggings, one more long tunic and I will move onto summer colors of white and blue.
And maybe I can get Nick to use the correct lead each time!
