sewing plans (madness and babbling)
I bought some new patterns and went shopping the other day. Tons of new inspiration is buzzing in my head!
I saw a lot of lovely retro/modern designs in the stores. It seams the bare tummy is back. I kind of like this as I'm one of those persons that do have a flat tummy. I'm flat everywhere in fact, and sometimes fashion just makes me look like a little kid who is wearing her parents clothes. In hopes that these kind of clothes will flatter me I'm suddenly planning on a whole wardrobe. Somewhere inside of me a small voice is talking about the practicality of having part of your torso bare, but my sewing craziness got the upper hand. For now. I do love the combinations they are making for these designs. Pairing them with an A line skirt of shorts and jeans or shorts. I especially like how normal and everyday most of these look. The neckline variations also seem quite endless. I'm head over heels with all of these possibilities.
I've collected a little gallery of forever 21 examples of this new trend. I love LOVE LOVVEEEE all of these! I especially like the designs with sleeves though. I'm also completely in love with the black lace top with the deep back neckline. I short I want nearly all of these, in some sort of version. I think I'll sift through my pile of left over fabrics to start on some of these beauty's. I want an A line skirt and some retro shorts to go with them as well. Lucky thing there is an extra fabric fair soon.
I've also been eyeing this butterick pattern for a while now. It looks a lot like the left shirt on the lowest row in my opinion. Well the pattern looks better but I want something different still. Certainly on my to do list now!
To finish of I couldn't get myself not to copy these gorgeous dresses. Although they might be a bit short, I think they are very very flattering. The left one actually reminds me of the Marilyn dress in the seven year itch I spoke of before and the right one has a nice gathered detail in the front I like. It reminds me of some burda patterns I've seen. The middle one is just amazing. Its one of those killer dresses. Hot without being vulgar, classy but with an edge. delicious.
Oh AND I bought the most recent burda style. I must say that it's one of the best they published since I started religiously checking out weather the magazine was any good every month. Witch means in almost 3 years. I love a lot of the designs a lot. I think I will need to make at least three more dresses now. oh well, you can never have enough clothes can you?
