I've been dabbling a bit with fashion design/outfit design this week. Some of you may know I dreamed of studying fashion design when I left school, but my parents didn't want me to. I used to spend hours and hours drawing outfits, and I've had another little go this week. Here are three outfits I'd like to be wearing this Autumn:
Left: Black wrap blouse with stand up collar and olive trousers with black lace stripe down leg.
Centre: Sewaholic Gabriola olive/black leopard print maxi skirt (already made) and Lily Sage & Co Branson top.
Right: Self drafted camel skirt with exposed zip, camel and black stripe top and black cropped jacket.
Yesterday - a couple of days after sketching these outfits - I spotted the newly released Anderson blouse from Sew Over It.
I think it's perfect for the blouse in my first outfit. I'd even be prepared to forgo the stand up collar I sketched. This pattern was released as a pdf yesterday, and is on sale for £5.00 until 20th August. I'm buying my copy today. It will be my first Sew Over It pattern, so I'm very excited to try it.
I've also been making a wrist pin cushion, after reading a scary article about a woman who inhaled a pin she'd been holding in her mouth. I always put pins in my mouth, and as I don't really fancy having major surgery to my lung to have a pin removed from there, I'm going to do my best to use my cute new rose pin cushion instead. (I do realise that the chances of inhaling a pin are pretty slim, but better to be safe than sorry!)
