Concept/Initial Design Process: Sketching, Selection of Fabrics

We have reached the week of the Concept/Initial Design Process. This process includes the sketching and selection of fabrics. My fabric selections are two that I would not normally put together. However, since this design challenge is a great outlet for my creative side, I have chosen to use a pretty, sheer purple fabric as the overlay on the peach colored fabric.

This duo creates a beautiful flowy look for a day party or any spring/summer event. I had initially chosen a few patterns to use but as my creative thought process changes, so does my plans. I am considering using a pattern for the top half of the dress.

At this point, I have basted the two pieces together just to see how well they blend. I am definitely pleased! Don't forget to tune in as this challenge progresses! #SewTall&CreativeDesignChallenge2017

  1. I'm excited to see what you make! I'm also impressed that you've already started playing with the fabric. Very good idea! :)

    1. Thank you! I was afraid to cut it, but so far so good.

  2. They go really well together so your dress is going to be a beautiful colour and texture. I'll confess I was just a little bit scared of the silk chiffon – how does it behave under the needle?

    1. I was and still am afraid of it lol. I basted the two pieces together and didn't have any issues. It will be on the outside so the other fabric underneath it made it stable enough to sew through with no problems. I'm hoping that it continues this way. Time is winding down! I'm ready for the big reveals =)!
