All I seem to do are home decor projects anymore...... We hated the valances in the living room and dining room, so we took those down. But we were left with the wooden frames and with family coming for Christmas it got to the point something had to be done.
I thought I would share some designs that I hope to use with those fabrics I got recently. I hope to be able to get working on a project soon. I also have a few home decor projects to work on too. Cowhide, suede, and leather lacing are on the supplies list.
Help! I have a few design ideas floating around, and I am trying to decide what I should do.
I made mini mock-ups in doll size to get a better feel for how a design would work.
Not every design makes the cut for creation. And even if it does, it might go through a few renditions and variations before it reaches its finalized state. I have three different categories that my designs go into:
Since I can't be sewing I am dreaming of future sewing projects by window shopping fabric online, and pulling out my sketchbook to do something with the creative bug.
I issued a fashion design challenge a week and a half ago, and then some thoughts on design about a week ago. Today, I figured I would share what I have been doing in relation to those posts.
I have a challenge to fellow vintage fashion enthusiasts: create an original clothing design (dress, evening gown, suit, skirt/blouse combo) inspired by World War II rationing.
I have the first pattern draft of this skirt sketch of mine done. I am ready to do my first complete test of the pattern. I still have a lot to do before the pattern is ready to sell. I can't help but look through my other sketches and dream about what I want to work on next both in pattern drafting and projects.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
