Designer Inspired Separates

Over at Mood Sewing Network you can see how these three pieces were inspired from Tracy Reese

The shirt is Simplicity 4076, skirt is Ottobre 5/2010 #2 and the bomber jacket is Papercut Patterns Rigel

Our challenge was to create a garment or garments inspired from the Spring 2014 runway collections.  To see many collections head over to  and click Fashion Shows.  Spring 2014 RTW, was my preference to select a designer.

Why did I choose Tracy Reese?

  • the colors, fabrics and textures
  • interesting details, especially necklines and waistbands, finishes
  • the ability to mix and match the pieces
  • garments that I would wear and enjoy

Next week, I will post about each garment individually, the changes and what I would do differently next time.

If you would be so kind and leave a comment over at Mood Sewing Network, I would really appreciate it.  Currently, Peter, Oona and myself have are challenge garments postes, with many more coming next week.

What designer has inspired you? See any new to you designers over at the fashion shows?
