At the beginning of the year, we did a Spring Palette Challenge, and it was such a hit that we’re ready to start a new one for Fall!
So what is the Fall Palette Challenge? In a nutshell, it’s a 10-week challenge to get you thinking about sewing pieces that work together, coordinate, and work for you. It’s designed to inspire your thinking about color and help you make clothes that fit your style and wardrobe.
Here’s how it works. You choose a color palette for Fall, choose how many pieces you want to make, and try to complete them within our 8 week timeframe. It’s really fun and low pressure. If you don’t finish, who cares?
So here’s the structure for this challenge:
- Week One: Define your challenge. Gather inspiration, make inspiration boards, review fabric choices, pick your palette, and decide how many garments you’d like to sew from the palette. Plan out your projects and decide what you’ll be making.
- Weeks Two through Eight: Sew! Make your mini wardrobe, and share your progress with everyone else in the community forum.
And this time, we’ll be collaborating with the wonderful community over at COLOURlovers! The folks over there asked me to do a little guest blogging, and I thought the Fall Palette Challenge would be perfect. If you haven’t visited COLOURlovers, you should definitely take a look, because it’s a great way to create palettes and gather color inspiration.
I’ll be posting more about how to use COLOURlovers for this challenge soon. In the meantime, start thinking about your color ideas! I’ll be posting my palette and moodboard tomorrow to kick us off, and I will (hopefully) start sharing my own projects starting Sept. 9!
