Pantone Colors for Spring Coloring

Sunday, August 23, 2009
I have been matching the Pantone colors with my best colors. I have light red hair, brown eyes and light-to-medium skin color. In the American Color Me Beautiful system, I am a spring; however, in the European version I am a warm/soft. My color varies slightly based on how recently I have dyed my hair, so I wear the softer colors as the color washes out.

I am not a color expert, but I thought the information might be useful to others with my coloring. I tried to match the colors to the Color Me Beautiful books, but I was not able to match some of the colors exactly, but it is close enough that I think the information will be helpful for those of you who order fabric online.

Cindy, how did you do this? Did you use the color swatches from the book and match them online? Or? Thanks.
