STEP 1: Find what colors I want to use.
This floral fabric gave me my palette. Nice, springy, feminine and vintage inspired. I have 5 yards to work with.
I guess you probably could have just looked at Modcloth.com since most of my pins are from that site =) Some of my favorites are:
|Pink Me Up Dress|
|Grass Court Dress|
|Soda Fountain Dress|
|Sundress Of My Life|
I chose mostly solid colors on my inspiration board because I want my clothes to be coordinated with my accessories made from the floral print. Once I went through my stash, however, I found that I have mostly printed fabrics. Hopefully I can get enough coordinating pieces to make at least some of my items interchangeable. So far I have chosen the floral print, pink gingham, yellow gingham, a solid pink embroidered linen/rayon blend, white eyelet (I got green fabric dye for it since I have no green fabric) and a violet gingham eyelet.
STEP 3: Choose sewing patterns.

That is as far as I have gotten at the moment. I want to make some sketches and experiment with some pattern/fabric combinations. More soon!
