I’m not sure what possessed me to share these with you because a) I canNOT draw for the life of me and b) I am not a designer; however, I’ve had a lot of down time recently (not by choice) (I have no friends) and I happened to stumble upon my sketch book (I don’t take an art class) (I don’t know why I have a sketch book either). In it I found this one design that I drew up about 3 months ago and it gave me the idea to start doodling again. Surprisingly, it was quite easy to come up with ideas. I just kept turning page after page and drawing design after design. Like I said, I’m no designer, but I was just having a lot of fun exploring my creative and imaginative side through drawing clothing designs! Here are some of the things I came up with:
This is a top and shorts with fringey, stringy like pieces hanging from the bottom of them. I got the inspiration by looking at butterfly wings to be completely honest, lol. Can you see the resemblance (the top) now?
I’ve been really into denim recently and top & bottom sets have been a really big trend as well; so, I combined the two and made a denim set! Really tempted to buy denim fabric and scrappily attempt to sew this outfit together.
This was the design I drew up about 3 months ago that inspired me to start doodling again. It’s sort of a Kim Kardashian inspired look. I was really into the set trend, like I said before, and also midi-length anything.
I was determined to create a floor-length sort of cardigan/kimono piece that also incorporated mesh/sheer. Then I needed something to put underneath and so this romper sort of just appeared! I wanted to create some design on the romper that was subtle and not too obnoxious. I imagine this all the same texture/fabric and very pastel shades that aren’t too vibrant. I think I should’ve made the colors on the romper blues and purples to match more with the kimono, but I love the romper by itself and how it resembles a sunset.
I would so wear this dress to prom if it was real. I guess I was on a mesh kick when I drew these, but I love how the mesh midsection divides up the solidness of the dress and creates this geometric vibe. I continued with the sharpness and created a slit in the middle of the dress so it opens up and shows leg. I wanted to make the dress open back because I think its very flattering, so I made a mesh trim on the back that aligns with the v-cut.
Please leave me feedback on my designs!! I would love to hear if you have any suggestions, critiques, or any other comments down below!
