*I spell colour with a u. Apple wants to autocorrect me on that, even though it’s right. I will spell it as “color” when the reference is from the US. Don’t you love language?
I loved Adey’s recent post on sewing plans. In it she pulls the Pantone fashion color report for Spring 2012 and choses colours that she knows will look good on her. Great post.
My question is: how much thought do you give to colour and trends? I have to be honest, before I started sewing I was probably on trend because I bought what was available in the stores. Do you notice how all stores will be filled with brown or plum or cerise?
Since I’ve started sewing I’ve sewn a lot of frosting. And I buy fabrics that attract my eye. Do they look good on me and follow trend? I really only care about one of those things. It doesn’t matter if it’s on trend if it doesn’t look good on you.
That being said I’ve never been a person who only wears certain colors and swears off others. My red-head friends are experts at this.
So, what colours look good on me? What better place to find out than a fabric store where you can drape yourself in colour. I’m hoping to try this out on our trip, in fabric stores where no one knows me.
Do you KNOW what colours look good on you? Do you follow trend? What colours from Pantone do you like for spring 2012?
