There are so many important things in life that each person needs to have in order to feel happy…One of these things in my case is passion for things I do, such as my work or my little hobby that couldn’t exist without #inspiration. A few months ago, I was asked about the source of my ideas and I was more than happy to share that I have a couple of them, for example the runway (I watch most of the fashion shows online), movies or dreams (yes, I had a few dreams that included pretty interesting outfit ideas, that eventually transformed into reality).
Here is a recent example of using the runway as my source of inspiration; The skirt I am wearing was one of my favorite summer projects and the outfit you see below was inspired by Versace designs. I knew that I will never find a skirt like that so I had to sew it….Once I started the process, I realized that it’s not going to be easy to find the right fabric, because It had to be colorful in a very particular way and have a fluffy/ruffled effect. Unfortunately, the fabric that I found was too soft and its texture wan’t good enough for creating the flufiness, so my talented seamstress came up with the idea of using a string (like fishing line) and inserting it into the ruffle’s edge, to make it stand, plus a tulle fabric that was added underneath the ruffles.
I was very pleased with the result so now I am hoping that this little sewing trick will be your little inspiration for making the purfect ruffles :).
