Inspiration from a New to me Designer...

I see inspiration everywhere.  And after not much sewing for the last couple of weeks I was thrilled to be inspired by something again.  I found this dress in the April 2013 issue of Bazaar magazine...



I'd never heard of this line before so I hopped on over to the Saks Fifth Avenue site to check out the designer and their line.  I'm not sure if this line is designed by a woman, a man, or a corporation because everything I google comes up with the line but nothing about the designer.  However, can I say that if you like bold colored prints, you will love this line.  You can see it here at Saks Fifth Avenue in regular and plus sizes (love that!), at Bergdorf Goodman and at Farfetch.



This is the fabric I want to use...to which I will add black lace sleeves...



My TNT dress pattern will, of course, be the basis of this new dress.  I know it's loud and colorful, incorporating two of this summer's trends (bold colors/prints and lace), but I love the fact that I can get a two-fer in one garment.  So I'm pretty excited about making this one...look for it soon after I finish up my Mood garment!

...as always more later!

  21. I love seeing all your creations! Could you give some pointers regarding ponte knits? What fiber blends, where are good sources of them? I see ponte knit dresses in stores like Macy's but I haven't been able to find the dress weight fabrics anywhere.
