I did a serious and long overdue closet clean out and found that I have some holes in my wardrobe (not a single white shirt), items I love (including accessories) that don't go with anything and lots of pretty colorful tops. So guess what I made? A new pretty colorful top! Admittedly I do need some basics but this turns out to be the perfect top for right now because I used fabric from my stash, it was really easy AND it goes with one of those accessories "that don't go with anything".
I bought this woven stripe cotton fabric in Northern California (I want to say it's a Kaffe Fassett but I could be mistaken) It's soft, lightweight and in tones of rust with touches of gray. I have very little in the way of earth tones in my closet so it feels like something really new and different.
I paired it with this long lost necklace in my closet that I never wear. It has beautiful glass beads and a silver pocket style watch as the pendant. Finally I have something to wear....it with!
Did any of you do closet clean outs for the new year?
