Autumn/Winter Fashion Colours.....

Pantone choose Radiant Orchid as it's colour for the year although I'm not convinced that its a fashion colour for autumn/winter. A few shades darker and I'd probably roll with it.
Truthfully I'm not completely taken with this seasons colour report but then I'm old skol so brights and pastels for summer, mutes and jewels for winter.


My colours for this autumn/winter are likely to be ox blood red, greys, dark purple, burnt orange, mustard and teal, with a little pink and pale, almost ice blue thrown in for good measure .....

Which colours are you likely to be wearing?

Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
