Create Chic Outfits with Basic Patterns - PENCIL SKIRT
The reason I decided to learn sewing my own clothes was to be able to wear anything I like with high quality and low budget.
I respect and admire the Fashion Brands and how much effort is spent in building them, but if it is not for my budget, what’s the use! So after I started sewing, instead of idle window shopping, I started to notice the details and how one yard of fabric can be turned into a good quality outfit. Now I use my SYS - Look Book for this, and it’s much better than spending time in malls :) I advise you to use it as an inspirational resource as well.
When I examined the high fashion outfit brands closer, I realized that many of the RTW outfits are just smart variations of simple patterns. Of course the creativity and design quality lies in these details… And you HAVE TO HAVE good quality fabric to begin with. I claim that anyone who has an eye on fashion, and willing to execute basic sewing techniques, can create a high quality outfit just by following some simple steps.
