Spring Sewing–the Styles

Flowing styles and flowing fabrics are the key to Spring 2011 style. Softly draped, flowing evening wear, kimono sleeves and wide-legged feminine trousers will be popular. More form fitting cocktail dresses are will also be popular.

Fashion designer Nanette Lapore notes, “This spring is about convertible dressing – jackets that double as shirts, outerwear as light as a dress.”

Light chiffon makes delightful flowing jackets when just a little cover-up is desired. Organza makes wonderful light, evening wear/bridal wear jackets when stiffer fabric is desired.
