Color blocking is a great way to add interest to a simple design. It’s also a fun way to play with color. I’ve always loved the multicolored paint chips at hardware stores and I think just doing a gradient of one color would be lovely.
You can definitely go wild with color blocking and cut out different shapes and sizes. This sweater dress is flush with patterns made by different geometric shapes. It’s easy to go a little wild, and I prefer the more graphic look of sixties dresses. Especially ones that look like Mondrian paintings.
If you try color blocking, think carefully about the placement of colors, the size of the blocks and where they fall on your body. Do you have experience making a color blocked garment? What colors would you choose or what type of garment would you make out of color blocking?
