How to sew up the awesome Spring/Summer 2018 fashion trends


Today I'm excited to talk some fashion trends that graced the designer runways. Considering where I live I'm usually most excited about the spring/summer trends because those are things I can/will wear.

I know some people cannot abide runway fashion, either because they don't follow fashion trends, or, they find some of the trends these designers come up with questionable.
 And, let's face it sometimes these designers come up with unrealistic and quite frankly annoying trends IMHO, case in point, the whole see through to your underwear(if you're wearing any) trend, ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! please don't get me started😃😃.
Some people are also put off by the combination of outfit pieces, that just make no real-world sense, my take, treat some of these fashion shows like art exhibitions(which, fashion is an art form) it's not always gonna conform to real life, just hone in on one item of clothing you like on the model and think of how you would style that particular piece.

This is why we regular folk rely on the trusty high street for their wearable, real-life albeit poorly constructed, cheaper fabric interpretations.

HOW TO PATTERN DRAFT THIS AWESOME TOP WITH CUT OUT DETAIL





















On the blog today I'm sharing with you guys my first proper pattern drafting tutorial, it's kinda very involved and it's my first one so please do be patient with me.

In the tutorial I show you how to draft the front and back bodice, I also show you one way of drafting a short sleeve pattern(i'm still experimenting with different techniques, as sleeves are my nemesis).

The next part of the tutorial is going to be the cutting and sewing of the top.
