The Wardrobe Architect - Building Silhouettes

This week's post on the Wardrobe Architect series asked us to look at silhouettes and proportions, the overall lines of the clothes we feel comfortable in.   Accessories were not to be included, just garments in the shapes we like, grouped as outfits.

This builds on last weeks exercise of looking at shape, both in the ease and fullness of a garment and in neckline and sleeve shapes.

Here are the silhouettes I've come up with.






Obviously I would not wear the 2 dresses together, my collages just looked nicer with them grouped together.

As you can see, mine are all fairly simple.  I've come to realise that while I love full skirts and fussiness on others, I dislike them on me. 

I would LOVE to have the bottom 2 outfits in my wardrobe. 

I'm really enjoying this process, and can't wait to see what the next step is.

  1. There are some great pieces there. I think they reflect the things you make - which I guess is the point!

    1. Do you think so? I felt that with the exception of the shift dress they're very different from what I've been making, although I have just made a jersey wrap top similar to the one in the 4th collage.

  2. Lovely. You can see a clear theme (which is obviously the point!). Lots of knit sewing in the future!

  3. I've seen a few people doing this, it looks both fun and informative! and I think you should definitely think about getting those bottom two outfits for yourself too; they both look gorgeous :)

  4. I haven't been doing this for myself but it's fascinating seeing yours and other peoples choices. It's going to be interesting seeing if/ how it changes what you sew/ knit and buy. Great choices btw!

    1. I hope its going to make me think more careful about what I make and buy. I need to print these pictures off and keep them with me as a reminder I think.
