6-pack fabrics

I’ve pulled several possible fabrics for the six-pack wardrobe that I’m planning to make for my upcoming trip.  There are actually eight fabrics here but of course I’ll need more than six outfits for my trip.  Black stretch for pants; brown wool for pants, the rest for various tops and of course the raincoat.  I still have one or two dresses I’d like to make before I get started, but I know how slowly I sew.  Maybe I should say, how rarely I sew.  I don’t get down to the sewing room more than twice a week.  This is more because of my organizational skills than because of my schedule, although I have been working with a client for the past week.  Today I finished a dress that I plan to wear to a dance tomorrow night and I’ll try to get a photo of it.   I thought it would be a quick project, because it’s now a TNT pattern, but since it has six godets and is lined, it took me awhile.  Nevertheless, I’m pleased to have, now, a couple of TNT patterns and I plan to become like Carolyn and crank ‘em out.

Love your fabric choices and, of course, can't wait to see the rain coat.
