One of the things I love most about fashion is that it’s subjective. Yes, there are seasonal trends, the colors and silhouettes that are oh so haute, but trends don’t work for every body or budget. Personal style allows each of us the ability to build looks around trends while including on our own likes, needs and wants. And when we can’t find what we want, we can create it.
Begin by choosing a textile you love.
Then, pick a pattern that will suite the fabric, your body type and your sewing ability.
In order to make a basic pattern my own design I added detail through front fringe alongside decorative stitching and used the “wrong” side of the woven textile at the arm hole, center front bodice and belt.
Styled with layers of gold toned bracelets,
some fab earrings
and completed with a pair of two-tone strappy heels and I’m ready to step in spring.
