    I’m never shy when it comes to colours; I’m not afraid of mixing primary colours or colourful patterns. But this spring, I am very eager to turn it up a notch, along the lines of colourful and sustainable spring wear! I have been taking sewing classes and am looking forward to raiding the thrift stores for interesting fabric that I can upcycle into great spring grab, such as sun dresses, shawls and purses. I have always wanted to learn how to sew and I’m like a kid in a candy store, now that I’m getting my bearings in the sewing world. Having the ability to make my own, funky and fashionable sustainable clothing is definitely my trend to follow for the spring!

    This Scarves and Wraps from Green Sewn are a perfect way for adding prints and color to any outfit from denim to a solid color summer dress. Maybe you could use it as an accent to your hips or waist or use it as a top wrapping around your bust or as a headband, since I’m a fashion designer maybe I could use it as textile for one of my recycled bags or bracelets. Thanks for the opportunity!!! Always Success!!!

    Bring on the sunshine! It never ceases to amaze me how many wonderful sustainable clothing options that are possible today!
    I hope the number of choices keeps growing. Not only do I adore
    clothing made from vintage pieces of history, but they are so beautiful, as well. I have been eyeing several recycled, handsewn
    pieces of color in skirts, tops, rompers and accessories!
    Hand-screened tee shirts, kaftans and dresses are a fun way to
    add uniqueness and color to one’s wardrobe. I like the ties and
    bow ties for the Annie Hall look, too. Colorful purses and lovely scarves are a lovely way to add splash and brightness to an outfit! Even companies that sell reusable bags have so many design options, now. The Greensewn Company is new to me and I absolutely love everything about them…..Many thanks, Cindi

    Beautiful scarfs. I am wearing orange and yellow right now, so I don’t think anyone can accuse me of not having color in my life! More can never hurt though. :)

  6. Tee says:

    I have some very colorful tie-dyed cotton sarongs that I plan to wear over shorts while riding my lovely bicycle this summer. My bike is pretty whimsical, too, with charms and decorations, tagalongs and travelers…together, we’ll be quite a sight. Namaste’.

    Adding print and color to my wardrobe right now with trips to the local thrift stores. The thrill of a treasure hunt and the reward of a wonderful one dollar something! My last trip yeilded a long, flowing tunic with an Asian-inspired silk screen on printed fabic. So chic with a pair of skinny jeans!

  8. JanPattersonRN says:

    I love colour, I love silk, I love repurposing. I work full-time night shift, and sometimes a wide scarf or light shawl is just the thing to keep my neck and shoulders warm in those coolest hours before the morning starts. On my days off colour keeps me happy, makes everything a little simpler in my sleep-deprived state.

    These are lovely, and I promise, if I win a set, I will wear them wisely and happily.

    I’ve recently assembled my favorite spring outfit; now I’m just waiting on a beautiful day to have a picnic with a friend, or go down to the market! From toe to head:

    Feet: my bright red Tom’s
    Legs: electric blue Nixxi organic bamboo leggings
    Bum/Waist: This adorable high-waisted micro mini I got at a vintage store here in Kingston, Ontario, called Starling Vintage Lovelies. The owner upcycles vintage fabrics; these adorable little numbers were once long floral print skirts from the 80s, and with some scissors, a sewing machine, velcro and an elastic waistband she gave these pieces a youthful revival. Grab a vintage skirt at a thrift store and give it a go!
    Shirt: plain white T from a clothing exchange + a vintage cropped jean vest
    Head: A navy blue headband, with a small red flower pinned to it that I crocheted. Crocheting flowers is really easy, there are loads of tutorial online. You can make them any size, and can make them into other hair accessories or pin them to your purse, jacket, and even shoes!

    I love it when my outfit is as comfortable and fun as I feel, and the colors and prints this season make it so easy. Plus, since the best of them are vintage, we can all feel great about reducing our consumption. Happy thrift shopping and upcycling everyone!

    I channel my inner artisan when comes to assembling my look for the day. So for this spring season I choose prints that make a dainty, feminine statement for the season. For example, for Easter, I choose light, billowy fabrics, color pastels or florals and pair it with patterned pieces with bold accessories to keep the look sophisticated, not matronly.

  11. kmom says:

    I’m loving the bright floral prints that are everywhere this spring. While visiting my parents’ place this past week I remembered a beautiful pink, blue and green floral print dress my mom and I shared during my high school days (about twenty years ago) that I had packed away. I pulled it out, washed it in my HE washer and it is as beautiful as it was back then. I also snagged some great wool ski sweaters my grandma knitted for my dad that’ll be great to ward off the cold until the warm weather comes to Seattle sometime in July!

    As a big fan of bike riding, I am an equally big fan of black clothing (hides the sweat, traps the sun in the winter, etc). Spring, however, is here, and black just feels… inappropriate. The trouble with that is that black has been a staple of my wardrobe for years now, and recent college grads don’t have the money to blow on clothing. To alleviate the oppression that is everything I wear, I’ve turned to accessories: earrings, necklaces, metallic belts, floral headbands, striped scarves, even some pink paisley shoes! The trick, I’ve found, is not mixing up your patterns. It goes from interesting to overboard quickly, everything in moderation! Anyway, I’m having a nice time this spring mixing up my wardrobe with patterns and colors, and these sari scarves look like they would be really nice additions :)

    As a college student, I get a great deal of my clothing from thrift stores, which means I have a VERY bright and wacky closet! These scarfs are a great way to add color, promote sustainability, and add a versatile piece to your wardrobe. I like to add bright colors to my outfits by pairing one bright piece with more toned down ones (like the models of the sari scarves, I like to pair color with a good pair of jeans and a plain white shirt or tank). These scarves would be a wonderful addition to any woman’s closet. Not only are they unique and equally fitting played down or dressed up, they also contain the stories and personalities of the Indian women who once wore and adored them during their lives as beautifully ornate saris! I can see myself throwing this on to dress up a bland outfit on my way out the door or over a little dress after a few hours tanning at the beach!

  14. marvah says:

    Since I’ve lost almost 30 lbs last 6 months i just started to use color to show off my new shape. I’m a tank top girl so all my tank tops are anything else but black and white. And as a bicycle lover, i love to ride from thrift store to thrift store and shop until i drop, I love scarfs and i have my own little collection and it is colorful like a rainbow and shoes, i love colorful flats and my favorite pair is blue flats with space invaders bottoms. This year is my year i’m going to shine like a rainbow :)

  15. samsstuff says:

    I think it’s important to add a bit of color, for contrast to any outfit. It can take attention from a problem area or highlight your best feature, brighten your step & of course, add excitement to a dull outfit. I try to do this often, no matter what the season. I love the lift it gives me & the smile it puts on my face!

  16. gracey says:

    I’m finally cleaning out my clothes closet, and having the motto, “reduce, reuse, and recycle” foremost in my mind. After seeing the results, then I can ascertain what to fill in — with lots more color and prints for the spring! Thanks.

  17. shellthebell says:

    My favorite way to punch up an outfit is with accessories. I live in neutrals. Navy/white/khaki/black/brown/gray(my favorite) make up my wardrobe. Pants/cardigans/shirts/skirts/dresses are all either solid neutrals or a mixture of both. For example I am currently wearing a black dress with tiny white flowers on it. So, you might be a little bored looking into my closet. BUT hanging over my closet door is a multitude of colored scarves and hats that I accessorize with everything. Greens, pinks, oragnes, and rich deep purples all add to my favorite neutrals for that little pop of color. AND if you take a look beneath the cloths, BAM shoes! Shoes are the place that anyone can be daring and bold and I love to do so. Flats with bow accents and jeweled accents and sequins! A sari scarf would fit right in to everything that I wear and be perfect for freshening up my duds for spring and summer!

    Vivienne Westwood said in an interview that people today are uglier than ever. She said that we don’t take the time to build personal style. Looking around all I see are grey suits. A world of grey suits and grey thinkers. Just like going to a dinner party and meeting that person who makes you laugh and want to stay a little longer, mixing color into the world of others does the same. This spring I’m going to take risks and wear on the outside what I feel on the inside. Instead of resorting to the black boots and grey blouse, I’ll wear the wild.

  19. GlendaKuehn says:

    Of course, color, color and more color. The more you have the more you don’t have to worry when you want to feel elegant, crisp, or for a fresh look with something you already have in your wardrobe. It’s like having some bling. If you are a girly girl it’s impossible to have too much bling to accessorize. I love scarves in my hair, around my shoulders, or just adding color and style to the look I want. Warmth, style and color…yes you can…

  20. purplehayz says:

    I’m always looking for interesting things to pass along to my spouse for her wardrobe, and this is perfection. You see, Aviva is an artist and she is influenced by Asian (especially Indian) design. And she wears black a lot, but since moving to California she’s been trying to add color to her look.

    This would be perfect!

    Thanks and have fun! – Bob

    I am adding color to my wardrobe this Spring by wearing colorful accessories with neutrals. Color always cheers me up when I’m feeling down. =D

  22. Lindangieseking says:

    I would love to add the color of one of these vintage scarves to my spring ang summer wardrobe this year! The lovely blues, turquoises, and greens of the 1st scarf shown would look lovely to accesorize and add color to my wardrobe this season!
    After losing most of my clothes in a recent house fire and then losing over 20 pounds due to the stress and extra work that cleaning up after a fire requires, nothing I have left from the fire fits! It would be lovely to add the color of these lovely vintage scarves to accesorize my wardrobe and brighten up both my spirits and my wardrobe with the lovely colors!!!!

  23. tenmoku says:

    Wow! Gorgeous scarves! What woman wouldn’t want to add one of these to her wardrobe! I love that they are recycled, and thereby connecting us to the women who wore those lovely saris. Throwing a scarf over my shoulders when going out for the evening not only adds color to my simple wardrobe, but also adds a light layer for when restaurants and theatres have the air conditioning up too high this spring! To add some spark to neutral clothing basics, I’m currently knitting a lace shawl in a beautiful, raspberry-red linen yarn. Given, however, that I am a novice knitter, donning one of GreenSewn’s colorful, elegant scarves would sure be easier and lovelier! Your scarves are great for any age. Now in my late 50’s, I’m wanting to add color to my wardrobe in a rich, textural, sophisticated, yet carefree way. One of your scarves would fit the bill nicely, lighting up both my face and my spirit.

    I’m expecting my second child this spring and so this summer most of my color and prints will be coming along with her! I’ve made several cloth burp rags to keep my clothes from getting too much spit up on them and I chose prints with vibrant colors and large motifs that hopefully won’t be over-stimulating to her but are still interesting to me. I also have a sling that is lined with a solid neutral color but the outside is a large floral motif with many strong tones that will compliment whatever solid color t-shirt I have on that day. I also plan to keep my hair out the way while playing with my two year old using recycled t-shirt headbands. Reverse applique designs give a strong graphic quality to the leaf and flower motifs I usually use. Plus, they’re a great way to get more use out of the t-shirts that shrunk during their sabbatical in my closet.
