That´s Sew Cinematic: The plan.


So, a little late in the Cinematic Sewing Game, I return with some plans for my spring sewing. According to the meteorologists, the weather in Sweden is three weeks early, and we are experiencing some wonderfully sunny and warm days. Maybe it´s time to bring out the summer wardrobe? Or maybe it´s time to make some spring-y new garments?

Choosing what to make for this Sew- Along was not easy, and my original list was WAAAY too long. I´ve chosen some key items that will fit in with the rest of my wardrobe, and with my fun!- palette as well. A lot of red is important, and also a little blue bolero for those chilly spring evenings. The shorts are for the warmer days in May and June.

The inspiration comes from The Rum Diary (2011), Hudsucker Proxy (1994), The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954) and The Women on the 6th Floor (2010). All of them great movies, with thought through costume design. What´s not to love?

So, how are your sewing plans coming along? I´d love to know!

Have a great weekend!

    I wouldn’t be worrying about being a bit behind when you come out with such stylish & wearable plans like this! I am not familiar with all the films, but I like the “capsule” wardrobeness of them all. Some brilliant red going on there ….will be stunning 🙂

    Fun! I haven’t seen most of those movies (only the Hudsucker Proxy) so I’ll have to watch them. I like the bold reds.

    I’ve not seen any of these movies! Although Rum Diary is on my list. I like all your sketches!

    Oh! The Rum Diary!! I’m so glad you picked that one and can’t wait to see what you come up with. I’ve been interested in vintage looks with island fare — more casual, more youthful — and Puerto Rico in the early 60, to die for. I haven’t seen the others, but I’ll put them on my list. 🙂 I’m thinking of a skirt from One Day and a top from The Artist.

    What a lovely plan! Everything is so pretty. My favourite is the Rum Diaries dress – gorgeous!

    OOh, the sketches look good. I like all the red and the shorts. I am looking forward to seeing how thet turn out.

    I love the Hudsucker Proxy!! Your list sounds fantastic!

    Those plans look fantastic, I love all the red! We also had a very summery weekend over here. 🙂 I like the blue bolero, too, I have a similar one on my knitting needles at the moment!
