Can Anyone Be A Fashion Designer?

Anyone can learn to sew, buy some fabric, follow a pattern, and make a piece of clothing, which is an absolutely wonder thing in itself!!!

But, it's the little added things to a garment, and the extra steps a designer takes in changing, making, or altering a pattern to add their own special touch to it that makes one a designer, and sets them apart from others.

Let's take a look at some examples.

Notice the shiny black patent leather fabric for the pirate coat.  It stands out, instead of using a dull black fabric. The bottom has netting and fringe, the collar is lined in the bold black and white stripe fabric.  Wendy designed and made this outfit to be cute and charming, so her daughter would look like an adorable little pirate!!!


Notice the summer tank top.  The first photo show the way the straps were supposed to be made in the directions.  This was BORING to the designer, she wanted some "different" something more... She twisted the long strips of the fabric, tied knots in it, and added colorful beads to give a regular summer top more of a "beachy, hippy" type of look.

You can see more on the different straps the designer tried for this top here.

Take the first step first! Go ahead and learn to sew, read a pattern, and make a couple of things.  Then try your hand at the creative end, and add your own little flair to the pieces! Designing a garment, is as much fun as sewing one!!!



Take a look at this skirt and matching bag.  This designer, Catherine, added a decorative pocket, lace, buttons, and then splattered paint and put sequins on the right side of the skirt and bag.  Very clever!  All of this creativity was added to a simple one pattern piece skirt.
