Fashion Inspiration

Besides building a collection of wonderful patterns for women dresses, skirts and fashion tops, I’m also adding the occasional inspirational design image.

This is my currently most fabulous inspiration dress.

(Not that I’m about to wear it any day soon, as it is literally freezing where we lived. First time since 50-60 years this village had this much snow…. Mmmm… did we import that from Canada…

We’ve had snow here every year we lived here now, albeit that it was a token snow in the last two. The snow melted instantaneously. Not so today: already white landscapes here for a whole week. Pretty, gut makes dresses like this look ‘freezing’.)

Fashion Trends

However, this dress sums up a bunch of fashion trends that I like to ride with:

  1. fun / strong individuality
  2. ruffles
  3. show some leg but not too short
  4. romantic without being frilly
  5. crochet-ed
  6. beaded
  7. matching be-jeweled clutch
  8. Empire waist

Because the dress is so dramatic, it is probably relatively flattering when wearing high heel shoes . Anyhow, most of the sewing patterns on that page are more practical, albeit trendy & stylish. Have a look.
