RTW Inspiration

Hello! I got my second dose of the Co-vid vaccine earlier this week. I’m feeling hopeful and excited (and still a little under the weather.) I’m wearing one of my favorite RTW dresses in these photos. I found it shopping in New York a few years ago. I had planned to make something similar but decided just to purchase this instead. I get a lot of inspiration from RTW garments so I thought it would be fun to start a new series on the blog where I share patterns and fabric on how to recreate them!

Patterns:

These all have similar design features to my dress and could easily be hacked to add tie straps or gathered tiers.

Fabric:

I think these pastel striped seersucker fabrics would be perfect!

Khaki / Palm / Yellow / Blue / Pink

Do you get inspired by RTW garments when you are sewing?
