Fashion Advice We ALL Need to Heed
If you take time to sew clothing, you obviously love fashion. Color selection is one of the most important decisions you make – every day as you dress, but also as you select fabric. In my humble opinion, you can’t do any better than to listen and understand color and styling through my buddy Nancy Nix-Rice.

In a Nutshell…
“The dark green outfit on the left is far too dark and visually heavy for the coloring of the wearer’s head. And the head-to-toe white outfit is so light that it doesn’t connect with the wearer’s much stronger coloring.
The concept here is that the colors you wear head-to-toe should be relatively equal in value to your personal color pattern. ” quote taken from Nancy’s March 29, 2017 Newsletter – Styling Tips & Trends – Week #7.
