  1. I love your pinterest boards! I did briefly consider trying This is Moonlight’s challenge. I live in MT. There is no fibershed thing near me.The processing and manufacturing is the stickler I think. I think I will just be content to try to source more stuff that comes from the US. I have done something similar in regards to figuring out what I actually wear only not in such a well documented and lovely way. It is all in my head instead. I do find looking at my fashion inspiration pinterest boards very useful though. If it isn’t a silhouette on that board, I probably won’t wear it. Like when I consider yet another A line shape dress or skirt. No matter how much I like the fabric, I will not wear it. It’s interesting that we do seem to gravitate towards a certain look/style, no matter what. Or at least that is my experience.

      Thanks so much! I do love using Pinterest for inspiration, I’m a little addicted :) You’re so right about the silhouettes that work over and over. I’m really excited for Nicki’s challenge but need to do a lot more research on sourcing and see if I have the time to commit.

      Thanks Kelly! I wasn’t sure how they were going to look starting out but I LOVE them! I figure if I’m going to spend the time making custom pants I mine as well go all out. :)

    My goodness, the art on your pockets is stunning! I’m considering the One Year, One Outfit challenge but am not sure where to start!

      Thanks Morgan! I’m so happy with these pockets! The One Year One Outfit is going to be a definite challenge. I really want to learn to weave, so I may go that route. Not sure yet. Just not sure how local I’ll be able to go and stay organic.

      Thanks Sandra! These ones were all made the Fashion Sketchpad, I’ll put the link in the post. When I’m doing more than one sketch it makes it so much quicker. Just wish the croquis figures were more realistically proportioned.

  5. You are so talented, Rebecca! Love the fashion drawings. Even more than that, I love the eco element throughout your blog. I’m embracing minimalism in 2015 (and part of that means doing the RTW fast!) and I think it’s wonderful that you are drawing attention to organic and natural options for home-sewers.

      Thanks so much! Glad to see someone else taking part in the RTW Fast too! Sustainability and eco-consciousness is so important to me, especially since becoming a mom. :)

    Good luck with your sewing plans! I love your sketches – think the white jumpsuit will be amazing. Also love that one of your colours is based on a Matisse cutout :)

      Thanks! I’m so excited to make up that jumpsuit- I’m on the lookout for the perfect fabric! That Matisse has always been one of my favs! My mom had a print hanging in her room when we were growing up and I have such wonderful memories of visiting the Musee Matisse in Nice when I was backpacking through Europe! :)

  7. I think your color palette is very lovely. The RTW fast pushed me to learn new techniques so this year I am excited to try more! I agree that sewing contest while fun sorta take the fun out of creating at your own pace. :)
