I’ve been a little busy lately. I’ve postponed articles to the very last minute. I have to really concentrate to focus 100% on my articles.
I’ve told you my main passion is clothing design. My second passion is making other women feel good about themselves. I’ve told you that I’m designing a clothing line for real women. I thought that I’d give you a little more than that.
These are my girls:
You’ve seen two of them in my Body Type articles Pear Shape and Boy Shape. Left to Right: Ashley Adams is my Boy Shape, Regina Roberts is my Apple Shape, Sally Sawyer is my Column Shape, and Judy Jones is my Pear Shape. (I also have an Hourglass Lady named Nancy Nutt. You can find her on AYHdesign on facebook.)
These girls are the templates that I use when I design clothes for certain body types. I lay a piece of paper over one of the girls and sketch up something to both conceal and flatter. I try not to go inside the lines – that would be cheating.
Here is an example:
For this particular line of clothing, I have taken four basic concepts of a dress or piece of clothing and formatted each of them to every body type. The sailor dress(shown) for Regina(apple shape) is not the same as the sailor shirt and sailor skirt design that I have made for Judy(pear shape), but the fabric and materials are all the same. For this particular design, it’s the blue stripes below.
Today I plan on finishing the four basic concepts on Sally(column) and Nancy(hourglass). Tomorrow, each lady is going to get an additional design exclusively for that body type, but it will still fit into the general look of the summer line.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to on the days that my articles are posted a little late or, regrettably, not at all.
