I love this idea!!  I think it would help me actually complete some of my projects and I'd love to follow the progress of all these lovely wardrobes!  Here are the pieces i'm planning for the spring/summer:

HP= Hot Patterns  ( http://www.hotpatterns.com/ )
DS= Decades of Style ( http://www.decadesofstyle.com/index.php )

I just finished the HP Everyday Pants today!  I made them in a grey yak/hemp blend, so they are technically more of a winter-spring transitional piece, but I thought I'd include it anyway.

So far, I'm envisioning a dress in linen, one in pique (maybe black), and one in green-and-white seersucker. 

Looking forward to this!!

EDIT:  Sorry, the pattern numbers are hard to see (from left to right):

I'm totally in! I will work on my pattern page over the course of the next few days ...

I'm excited to see so many people are interested in this!  Grin oneredboot - those look like great patterns!

Anyone made any progress?  I'm still working on a muslin for the Stella jacket, but it's looking promising.  Still on the hunt for perfect fabrics for the later pieces of my wardrobe -- if anyone comes across a pretty print that has purples/pinks, greens, and browns in it, send it my way!   Smiley

This is what I figured out is needed to make everything in my wardrobe -work-
It's a lot of tops since I currently have 16 skirts in my closet, most of them in some sort of pattern. Of course, most of my tops are patterned and only good for t-shirts anyway...I need basic blouses! So here's my plan.

of course, I decide to pick this up when I'm super busy, but I feel like it's nice to at least have a guide for what project I'm going to do next.

The thread has become my new daydream. Hopefully I'll have my spread done soon, so I can post. I'm going to try to start as soon as I have a job and some money to spend.

I've already decided on the colors for round one: pink/red, green/olive, brown/khaki, white/cream.

I am actualy planning on doing something very similair to this. In my version, I'm going to incorperate retooling thrift store pieces as well as making garments from scratch.

Here's some of the stuff, barring what I've already sewn (just finished danielle from burdastyle) and what I'm going to knit, I'll add that later. I wear a uniform at work, so these are just day off/going out clothes. I'm also going to do some skirts later on.

Oh, I'm SO IN on this. I just bought a couple Built by Wendy patterns that I want to start with over March break. My goal is to make short shorts that are long enough that I'd wear, bermuda shorts that look cute enough to wear, a couple short dress/tunic things to wear with spandex or short shorts, and a whole bunch of tanks and thin dresses. Yummmmmy

Be careful of Simplicity 3737. The cute little cap sleeves came out HUGE on mine, so I just removed them. Cry Just a warning. You might want to mock them up before attaching them. The body of the dress was pretty simple, though.

Dunno if I'll do the jacket, as I already have something that will match this set.
