Monday Morning Inspiration

Good Morning and a very happy Monday to you all! For those of you in America, I hope you survived the Thanksgiving holiday and that you are now ready for all that December holds :) Today's inspiration post is just some bits and pieces that I found and thought were rather fun. Most are ideas for manipulating fabric into something a little different, like this first idea of adding horsehair as a design element. Add interest to an overlay on a skirt. Rather than allow the folds of this circular skirt to hang free, tack them down and interest. Such a pretty way to manipulate stripes. Shirred circles to create a cap. Maybe just a detail would be better. An interesting detail that would look great added to princess seams. With all the new fabrics that are now available, we can cut away and have fun! This would be a little tedious, but how pretty, just a touch of red stitching. 3-D leaves for a voluminous skirt. Interesting design created with pleats. Pretty smocking details give the next pieces shape and interest. I've posted this coat before, but it's so pretty that it deserves a repeat look. I also posted this skirt recently, but again...so pretty. The folds make this an amazing skirt. Prairie points used to create an interesting belt. Now this is quite simple, but a great idea. Just take a rectangular piece of fabric, add 2 rows of gathering stitches and create an impromptu collar. And finally, I love this skirt. Each pleat is held in place with a zipper. Here's another look. So now you see(me too!!!), that folding, pleating and smocking aren't just an old fashioned idea anymore! Hope you can find a little time this week to have a little fun in an unexpected way! Rhonda
