Note: please ignore whatever mistakes you see in my sketches. I really havent been sketching for ages and on top of that I never learned fashion illustration, so…
This is my second sketch, (which is why it’s better than the first one below). Both of the pieces above will be my next project. Maybe I’ll do the pleated maxi skirt with pockets first. I’m planning to find a nice cotton, perhaps in candy colour. Pink, blue, I’m not sure yet. Let’s see what I can find. Then I’m also going to sew a shirt like illustrated above. Somehing with a slightly exaggerated armhole.
Next, I’m going to sew a blazer, as sketched above. It’s gonna be a light blazer, using medium heavy cotton. So, it’ll be suitable to be worn in this blazing hot Malaysia weather. I’m thinking about using a floral fabric. If this is a success, I’ll sew a military blazer too, but that’s not in my priority.
The pants… I don’t have to sew them cause I just bought them from Zara yesterday! haha. I was skeptical towards tapered pleated pants at first cause I have larger bottom in proportion and clearly, as far as know that kind of cutting doesnt fit my type of body. But then, out of curiosity, I tried it on and voila! They look NICE! They don’t make me look fat and short like I imagined. And it’s quite refreshing to know that I’m still a size S. hahah.
I also have many other ideas lingering around waiting to be expressed in this wacky brain of mine but for now, let’s leave it at that. Fabrics that I’d like to work with are of more lightweight fabric like chiffon and… super lightweight cotton or a good polyester silk. Gah, I feel like sewing a whole bunch of outfit and replace half of my wardrobe! I seriously hate most of my outfits now!
I finished sewing my nude lyrcra dress.
This picture was taken when I was still making it. I’ll post a proper picture soon! Hopefully!
Going to go get the fabrics today! I hope mum would buy me the fabrics cause I’m broke! kahkahkah so sad. T_T
