Inspiration and Shop Talk

Here's a dress with lots of embroidery around the neckline. The Embroidered Dress by Shoshanna. It is made from a silk/linen blend. Along with the embroidery at the neckline, there are also some beads. This is dry clean only. Price Tag: $375.00

Here's an interesting Stretch Poplin Dress by Melissa Masse. It has a v-neck, bell sleeves, and made from cotton/spandex. This looks like it would be very easy to duplicate with the right pattern. Anyone have any pattern suggestions?

Here is a Leaf Print top by Penta. This top has a v-neck, sleeveless, and made from silk charmeuse. Dry clean only. Price tag: $145.00. This top would be easily to duplicate using Socialite Dress pattern by Anna Marie Horner. You would just need to decide on the desired length and figure out how much fabric.

Here's a Print Tank by Caroline Rose. It's 100% polyester and dry clean only. Price tag: $105.00. This would be very easy to duplicate using the Tank Top pattern by Silhouettes.

Hope you found some inspiration today.

Happy Sewing!
