Step 8 is adding 2 tops and a necklace and this is where we can bring in a patterned fabric. Again these items are already in my wardrobe, my yellow peplum top, the Blue and Gold swirls t-shirt and the navy necklace
Step 9 adds three pieces, a skirt, top and shoes, and these three pieces already live in my wardrobe. My suede skirt, the navy/gold/brown silk blouse and another pair of Circa Joan & David sling-backs in brown.
Step 10 is the addition of a casual jacket, t-shirt or blouse and casual shoes. This time I have added my Minoru jacket, blue/brown/green boatneck top and I will have to go shopping for some casual brown shoes.
Step 11 is where we add a complete outfit for balance and accent, so I have chosen to add my Brown denim skirt and brown waterfall cardigan that are already in my wardrobe. The coral blouse is one to make and I have just ordered the perfect fabric.
Step 12 is adding a winter coat, boots and a scarf. Can aubergine be a colour of coral? I have the perfect fabric for a winter coat and do have the pattern ready to go! I know I don't want a brown or navy coat but coral or yellow is taking a bit too wild for me. I have the boots but will also need to knit the scarf/cowl.
Step 13 is all about more accessories and Janice does suggest a bracelet and brooch. I am not a bracelet person, I wear the gold chain bracelet that was in the first round of accessories all the time. I do have some brooches and do dig them out every now and again. I could also do with an evening bag so I have included this in this round. The necklaces and earrings are already in my jewellery box - Smokey quartz necklace and earrings , Brown beads with some double spiral chain maille, Blue,Grey rope and earrings
There are a lot of garments and accessories in the group above and there are still a few steps left to add. I have been surprised at how much of this is in my wardrobe already.
Following Alexandra's idea I have also decided to keep a separate list of garments that I need to sew, knit or purchase and this is what it looks like so far.
Has anyone else got this far along with their planning, please share in the comments.
