Design with Stripes

IMG_2920IMG_1295Liz H. never ceases to amaze us with her boundless enthusiasm, her eye for detail and her skill at putting it all together. In a Sew Chicago meeting on stripes, Liz let on that the reason she loves working with stripes so much is that they suggest their own interesting designs. She then proceeded to show us a large suitcase full of examples, as well as how she goes about designing with stripes.

Liz is not alone in finding inspiration from striped fabric. In a recent blog post, Britex Fabrics showed a fresh and fun design by Jamie Lau that includes detailed instructions. I’m thinking that bodice design could put a real wow factor into a sheath dress. What does it inspire in you?
