Seeing my first design come to life has invigorated me. I have so many ideas! In fact, this past weekend, I was like a kid in the candy store at Mary Jo’s (my favorite fabric spot)…. Literally running through the aisles –from one side of of the store to the other. Sheer madness and yet giddy with excitement!! I’m sure I received a few of those “weird” stares from some of my fellow patrons but I couldn’t help it …. it was so much fun!! Seeing all the fabric choices just inspired me even more.
You see, the blazer itself is such a classic and simple fashion concept, yet there are almost an unlimited number of modifications that can be made to it. Bold colors — patterned fabrics — small design tweaks and you have an entirely different look. (I’m giddy again!!!)
This is my latest modification to my short sleeve blazer design…. an added tuxedo flair. Elongated front panels (instead of the back tails). Exaggerated lapels with tuxedo trim details. So, what do you think?
I’ll be starting the construction of the next set of blazers within the next week so — more to come soon!!
