The article by Susan Lazear on “Mix & Match with Domino Design” in the January issue (#134) about creating a capsule wardrobe by carrying over fabric from one garment to the next was very intriguing. Along the same line of making a coordinated wardrobe instead of a closet full of lovely but unrelated garments, has anybody done anything with reversible garments? I’m working on a set using two colors of lightweight linen-like fabric & two carefully chosen prints; when finished I’ll have in reversibles one jacket, two blouses, one skirt, & one pair of walking shorts, or essentially ten mix-and-match garments for the price of two in the stores. Also, by selective choices of non-bulky trims & details, each side of each garment can have an entirely different look & not be just a carbon copy of the other side.
