Bleu Pétrole versus Vert forêt / Petrol-blue versus forest-green

En attendant de recevoir mon patron, je file l’obsession et décrypte tranquillement le style “Joan H.”. Antoinette m’a fait remarquer que les couleurs qu’elle associe à ce personnage sont des tons d’automne:  effectivement, après avoir vu moults photos, il semble que les tonalités chaleureuses l’emportent : rouge carmin, violet profond, jaune moutarde, vert émeraude, beige soutenu, vert pétrole… Je pense que c’est dernière couleur qui va l’emporter! J’hésite encore un peu avec un vert forêt, peut être moins pétard mais plus original (c’est quand la dernière fois que vous avez porté du vert-forêt,vous?!). Vos avis éclairés?

I’m still waiting to get my New Look pattern delivered. As i wait feverishly, i can’t stop obessing about Joan Holloway’s wardrobe. Antoinette wrote in a comment that she associated Joan with autumn colours. After searching the web and looking at way to many pictures of this gal, i think Antoinette is absolutly right: carmin red, mustard yellow, bold beige, emerald green, petrol blue, etc. I think i might just go for petrol blue.. What do you think readers? I really like this forest green above (nos as bold but more original i think : honestly, when was the last time you wore a forest green dress?!)

  1. Both of those colours are in my top 5 – so beautiful, and they cool down my pink complexion. I have a forest green dress that I wear a lot for work but it’s not as lovely as the one above. Petrol blue is more striking.

  2. I’m going to make that same dress, View A! I’m buying the pattern this weekend and I already have the fabric, an autumnal mini-floral. I’ve made a muslin of another pattern but I think this one will be better. I can’t wait to see your version.

  3. Le vert j’aime pas trop , un peu triste et éteint, alors par contre le bleu vif me plait beaucoup et c’est sur va faire fuir l’hiver…
