So we have previously looked at colour trends for 2012 and the subtle tones that will soon fill our high street retail stores.
What use it is knowing the ‘in‘ colours if you don’t know the ‘in‘ fashion trends.
‘After all, Tangerine Tango means very little if it’s sported on last years designs’.
Fear not fashion sewers! The research has been completed by Fashion Sewing Blog on your behalf. So sit back, relax and peruse this years ‘what to be seen in‘ designs.
What To Look Out For!
They say the fashion trends for spring / summer 2012 are to be mainly focused on peplums, drop waists and the style of bearing your midriff.
Alas! Sadly I’m no longer twenty years old so I’ll spare the world the sight of my midriff and waist. Now that’s not to say that I, or anybody else will have to miss out and cease from making designs that are too be in the public’s focus.
We still can!
I’ve sourced a number of sewing patterns that I feel keep with the spring / summer trend 2012, that you and I, as mere mortal women, can wear without fear nor embarrassment.
Have a look and tell me what you think!
