When I originally sat down to sketch out my wardrobe, I drew up lots of separates. I had visions of pants and shorts all matched with cute tops. And while I am not entirely abandoning this plan, I am adding to it. Recently my husband and I ventured into downtown Asheville to catch a showing of La La Land. The film was absolutely stunning! Being Jazz music lovers, musical theatre performers, and old movie buffs the movie was just our cup of tea :) Needless to say, Emma Stone's wardrobe greatly inspired me to add some dresses to my wardrobe. Honestly, I haven't sewn myself a good staple dress in years. Far too long!
One of the elements I enjoyed most about Emma Stone's wardrobe was that her dresses had a vintage feel and nostalgia to them without being over the top costumey looking. Some flowy breathable dresses will certainly be making an appearance in my closet this summer.
My practical reasons for this choice being we live in the Carolinas. Every single year summer rolls around, salutations are made to 100 plus degree weather not including the humidity index. Also no fuss dresses sound fantastic to throw on while taking care of a newborn! I can imagine I won't have nearly the amount of time to get ready as I do now.
Without further adieu, here are my sewing plans.
