OOTD w/ Butterick 5958 & McCalls 6654

Somehow, somewhere Brown & Red combined got a bad reputation...  and avoided mixing the two for years.  Then last year on a quest to create a vest suit, I came across a few yards of dk brown plaid suiting fabric in my stash.   I decided the color & fabric was perfect for Butterick 5958 & McCalls 6654.  When I'd completed the vest suit, I needed a color that would bring out the other colors in the fabric and the only color that made sense was red.  

THEN 2015


NOW 2016
 I am still loving my brown & red mix...

So, if anyone has been fearful of pairing the two together... don't be afraid.. Rock It
Well not so fast... lol.  The trick to it all is make sure to pair dark brown with a vibrant red and soft brown with a dark red/burgundy .. and there you go....



Until then,
Have a Great Week.
