Transitional Pieces to Make | Sewing Notions Portland

  • Black tank top – Many people consider a white tank top as a staple in their wardrobe. However a black one is so much easier to dress up. It's also very universal. Choose to add it to a pair of jeans and blazer or with a skirt and jacket. Either way it's a great addition to your wardrobe.
  • Long sleeved white T-shirt – This article of clothing is great for transitioning from spring to summer. It goes great with a pair of shorts or skirt. It can be quite casual or dressy, as well.
  • Short sleeved white T-shirt – Great for transitioning from winter to spring, white short-sleeved T-shirt looks great under any type of light jacket or sweater.
  • White button-down shirt – Choosing this basic wardrobe piece in a fitted will be great for both spring and summer. Tuck them in or leave them out. Whatever you choose it will be stylish and appear put together.
  • Open cardigan – Consider getting one of these in a dark or neutral shade. It goes with essentially everything. If you have concerns about your figure, consider a longer style that hits or lower. It's a very flattering.
  • Button up cardigan – Just like an open cardigan, this piece will be great for various looks. Consider getting one in a neutral shade.
