I need to become more creative with the way I use the media (fabric) and notions. When I look at RTW I love the details; the piping, zips, combinations of textures /colours and using the fabric in unusual/creative ways. I need to incorporate these things into my sewing and take it to the next level.
Selecting the right fabric for a garment is always a challenge which I think I get 'right' most of the time. I know how select patterns for my shape and can alter Burda patterns to fit me. I have a big stash which I have been deliberating "growing" (trying to buy fabric that is right for me when I see it) and can 'see' opportunities to combine different fabrics/colours and textures.
I pulled a few pieces from my closet and to look at the detail.

Like the use of black piping.
