Fashion design TV shows such as Fashion Star and Project Runway have increased the popularity of what some might call a dying art or hobby (sewing). Both shows collaborate with pattern making companies and I personally think this has led to patterns being more in line with current trends. Slowly over the last few years patterns have been trendier with better fitting pieces and I couldn't be happier!
This past week I have found some great patterns that look very similar to designer pieces. Here are my favorites and how you can make them yourself!
I am IN LOVE with the whole Kate Spade Saturday line really, but this top is super cute and I just happened to see that McCalls has an exact pattern, that comes with 4 variations. I bought this pattern this week when it was on sale! I can't wait to make a few tops.
Julianne Hough looked super cute at Coachella a few weeks ago! I think you would have to look for a vintage crop top/bralet pattern, but McCalls has a great lace shorts pattern!
Miranda Kerr looks great in these tuxedo striped crop pants! I have never made pants before, but this looks like an interesting pattern from McCalls.
