Good morning and Happy New Year! I'm continuing the journey of self discovery with being a clothing designer.
As I was browsing my usual sites this morning I peeped in on Burdastyle and had an epiphany moment. Here's what I found: The Pistachio Green Dress by Colette Patterns Shop so creatively put together by Burdastyle member, elegantmusings. The dress has very nice elements of the classic looks that I love. Elegantmusings put it best, "it’s the right balance of lady-like charm and classic style".
Well.....I then checked out the pattern shop and there I saw a lovely collection of vintage inspired patterns. Right up my alley right?
Here's the epiphany, I like to dabble in morphing patterns to create my own looks and they have been well received by my clients and friends. Also, I've collaborated on a summer dress pattern with my friend Marian of MC Collections and it was a hit at this past spring's Inman Park Festival. I think it's time to put it into production and explore the pattern making process again. I will need help of course, because I've never taken a pattern making class, but I think that I can handle creating a sample look and have someone else do the actual pattern drafting.
I can't wait to get started on this. I have so many Ideas to try.
Stay tuned, there's more to see!
