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.
