- Ethnic print romper - This hits two trends I'm really loving. I've been wanting a romper since last summer and I'm really loving the ethnic print garments hitting stores. I have the perfect fabric for the romper above.
- Peplum top - I've been meaning to jump on this bandwagon for awhile. This past Summer I even traced out the popular Simplicity top making its rounds in the sewing world. I'm glad I waited because I think piping will really make my top pop. I plan on making a top similar to this.
- Tuxedo Blazer - I think I may have been ahead of the trend on this one. I've been wanting a Tuxedo blazer ever since I bought a beautiful piece of painted cotton sateen last summer but unable to to find just the right pattern. Maybe if I practice enough I'll be able to draft my own similar to this one. We'll see.
- Pencil Skirt - What can I say. You can never have too many. I want to make few in lighter more Spring/Summer colors. Especially now that I have a TNT pencil skirt pattern.
- Floral Jeans - I have a beautiful piece of floral twill in my stash that is begging to be a pair of jeans. I'm going to use the pattern I created using the rub off method to make a pair.
- Feminine Blouses - I think feminine blouses in luxuriously drapey fabric are the perfect compliment to the floral denim trend. I'm actually in the processing of doing a rub off on a blouse that I own. If it's a success it will definitely be a TNT for a multitude of other blouses.
- Printed Trench - I think these come into fashion every season, but I've never owned a printed one. I have a red trench that I purchased years ago that I love and wear to death in Spring and Fall. The cut, the fit, the style is just really flattering on me. I have a pretty cotton sateen in my stash that's dying to be that jacket. Another rub off in making. lololol
OMG, you really need to check out this guy. Chris White. I discovered him a few days ago while surfing Youtube. He does time lapse fashion tutorials where he shows you the design process. The sketching, the draping, the pattermking from your drape, cutting and putting it all together. All from his home. The first video I saw was his interpretation of a boyfriend blazer. Stunned.
Until Later, Happy Sewing!
