I was blown away by this collection. I am kind of embarrassed to say that I never really seen any of her fall collections. I have always been a big fan of her bathing suits. I guess I just assumed that was her thing. I am glad I discovered her fall collection. I really like her style. Here are my favorites.
I am glad I took a look at his collection. I was pleasantly surprised. I love all the geometric patterns on the coat, dress and skirts. I am not usually into color except for red, but I really like the blue and purples in this collection.
I spent the beginning of my day going through some more collections from fashion week. If only I could sew, I think I could come up with a unique collection that could show at fashion week. Someday! Jenni Kayne's collection was another one of my favorites. Here are my favorite looks.
Last week, I was going through the spring collections trying to get inspired to make some new duds for Spring. With this week being fashion week, now I am looking at Fall 2013 collections. I am so confused. Am I inspired by Spring or Fall? Who knows. What I do know is that I am loving Jason Wu's Fall collection. Here are my favorites.
I am back. Did you miss me? I know it has been awhile since I have posted on here. I am sorry I have neglected you, but I have been putting more focus on my interior design blog (If It's Not Baroque...). I was trying to get more followers and it is finally going well. So now I can focus a little more on this blog. Yay! I have been going through all the Spring Collections and thought it would be cool to pick my favorite outfits. I can use them as inspiration for future outfits or sewing projects. I started with Oscar de la Renta.
This collection really has me inspired to make some clothes. I will keep you posted if I decide to make anything that even comes close to resembling any of these outfits. I just started sewing so I doubt it.
Yesterday, I turned my inspiration black lace maxi skirt into a reality. It was surprisingly easy and it is my first article of clothing I have ever made.
Black Lace (I used 1 1/2 yards) Black Ribbon Black Thread Sewing Machine
Measure your waist and add 4 inches to that measurement. Then lay your fabric out. If you lay it out folded in half, you need to divide your measurement in half before you cut your fabric.
Cut at an angle to get a tapered effect.
I cut some length off of the bottom before I sewed it together.
After you finish cutting it, go ahead and sew the side that is open.
Next, fold the top of the lace to make a pocket for the ribbon draw string. Pin and sew. Don't forget to leave an opening for the ribbon to be fed through. I forgot and had to cut an opening.
Put a safety pin on the end of the ribbon to fish it through your waist band. After that, you are finished.
I made a little black skirt out of left over knit jersey fabric from another project for the under skirt. You can put boy shorts, leggings or a short skirt under your lace skirt for tons of different looks.
I am proud of myself. Look out Project Runway, I am on my way!
