This week's inspiration is ModCloth's Poppy In for a Visit Dress. It's made in such a simple fabric. I chose this red stripe fabric from fabric.com, though this same fabric is in about a bazillion other colors. My pattern choice is only marginally close to the inspiration. I have long-coveted the Belladone dress from Deer & Doe, but have yet to purchase and make the dress. The dress has a back cutout and pockets and a floaty skirt and and and... I love it! I enjoy playing with pattern placement when I'm working with stripes and this is something I hope to do more of this year. I seem to have a lack of stripey fabric in my stash, however.
I'm back with the Fashion Plates. I didn't intend to take a hiatus, I just lost my creative mojo. I'm hoping it's back for a while. My time is in short supply these days with work and running and other obligations. I don't think I've sewn a stitch in at least a week. I'm going to have to make a deal with myself to sew at least one seam a day to have something like progress on things. Life: Why you so hard?
