A SHORT POP QUIZ
- Can one really have too much purple in their wardrobe? A: I think not!
- What do my recent wool coat and my soon to be new sheath dress have in common? A: Plum thread.
A pleasant happenstance this evening, while choosing thread for my new sheath dress, was that I didn’t need to rethread my sewing machine. Why? Because the thread I used for my coat was just the right shade for my new sheath dress. I think I have just enough thread for the project too. How cool is that?!
I don’t know if I’ve admitted it before, but purple is my favorite color. And while I haven’t indulged that much in it in my wardrobe in the past, I have begun to notice a purple trend in my stash lately. Oh, I may have conveniently forgotton that one of my winter coats is purple. And did I mention that I recently bought purple corduroy to duplicate my father’s jacket? I don’t think I am going to use that corduroy for this jacket now though. I mean, how can I get away with 3 jackets/coats that are purple??? That’s just a purple overload.
I may need to join Purple Lovers Anonymous.
I made decent progress on my dress tonight. I could have pushed my limits and finished all the darts on the lining too tonight, but I am sensibly knocking off early. I don’t really have any thread that matches my lining and I need to buy a zipper, so I will just wait until I can pop over to P&S tomorrow and check out their selection of thread and zippers. I like to be matchy matchy like that. That’s just how I roll.
Happy purplicity everyone.
