well, I'm in! Not really sure yet what garments will make it, but at least some of them will be in the indigo-blue category. Probably going for a half-monty, (since I don't really need eleven new garments) and am wondering about adding in some coordinating non-garment accessories* just for fun.

More later on once I muck out my sewing space enough that I can get a chance to pull together some coordinating fabrics... I know that there is some black/blue textured weave linen that could become a loose jacket, and my beloved indigo tigers rayon for a popover dress (which turn out to work really well not only for summertime on their own, but as an intermediate layer between a turtleneck top and a pinafore

*I'm thinking things like a new winter hat, maybe a kitchen or work apron, an Alabama Chanin style bandana kerchief... maybe even a new pair of earrings...

Luz Clara sent me several yards of delightfully striped and patched japanese fabric, very boro-esque. I plan on using it for either a pinafore, or a loose lagenlook jacket. Not sure if I will leave it all black/stripey, or overdye in a light indigo, or taupe. Leaning towards light indigo.
