Hello my lovely welcome back to my blog so today I have an amazing fantastic topped designed for you. It's a puffy style rustic kind of top. When I designed it I was channeling vibes of Victorian mixed with a little bit of antique style. I was looking for the kind of fabrics that they would have used in that time. For this project I chose cotton I was looking for sort of muted rustic brown fabrics. I found the perfect rustic brown fabric. I found it on fabric.com they have amazing fabrics on this website and its the best fabric I have ever tried online. I browsed through all the different sections and I found this fabric. It was perfect for the project that I was creating. My initial idea was to make a simple top. I am currently making a skillshare course. About making your own garments without any patterns. So I decided to start sketching and making different ideas. Of how I can make an interesting piece without a pattern.
I decided to do this because this was my original way of learning. how to sew before I even went to fashion University. I learnt how to sew. I started by making my own garments from scratch without any patterns at all. When I first started learning how to sew I found patterns to be quite intimidating. I found it confusing and hard to follow a lot of the patterns. They were very difficult to understand for a beginner. So what I used to do was I would find some fabrics and cut it up and experimenting with drape. And creating shapes and designing without using any patterns. With this way I developed my free hand sewing technique. In my upcomingskillshare course. I teach you how you can make any garment you want From Scratch. Using no sewing patterns at all. This is perfect for beginners to advanced level. Because you can always learn something new from creating something without using patterns. with this top I started off with a huge baggy Square to drape over the body. Then started to add in some Batwing Arms. I gathered the neckline and the waist with some elastic and I added pleating to the hem.
I have developed my own easy freehand cutting method this technique can be applied to anything you are making. Don’t forget to sign up below. Click the “subscribe” button and you’ll be the first to know as soon as I launch a new course or have a big announcement to share with my students.
