Wardrobe Building - Fabric Inspiration

Sometimes the first line of inspiration comes by way of photos.  Other times it could be a pattern and/or fabric.   I love the way these three fabrics "go together".   They are the perfect inspiration/combination for building a Spring/Summer wardrobe!
What's not to love about this lightweight, highly woven, slightly stretchy, Ankara fabric?!  It did not take me long to decide on this one while shopping at the local vendor who sells these fabulous fabrics!  There's hardly a time that I don't like mustard yellow!  The various shades of blue throughout are the perfect compliment!  This print will easily carry over into the Summer season.  
This medium weight, dark blue denim has been in Virginia's stash for quite some time.  It's one of those fabrics that you know will make up very nicely, you're just waiting for the right project to make it happen.  I can't tell you how many times I've picked it up only to put it down again...waiting!  It has a small amount of stretch and the richness of the dark blue is to live for!  Love this fabric!
Finally, this medium weight, white (which doesn't look very white in the photo below but more of the real color captured in the photo above) linen/polyester blend .  It handles quite nicely and I think it will also stitch up quite nicely.  Adding more white to my wardrobe is a definite need and I think this fabric is a winner!
I'm sew inspired by these fabrics and hope to have some new additions to my wardrobe very soon.  My goal:  end of March...let's see what happens.  I do hope I can accomplish this goal...I've already got April projects lining up!  Have a GREAT weekend!

Until next time...PEACE AND BLESSINGS!
