Mood Fabric Artsy Graphic Print - Inspiration from the Spring/Summer Designer Collection 2014

Selecting one designer and one fashion trend was a tough job to say the least.  There is so much to choose from.  Many designers like Marni, Prada, Versace, and Jil Sander all showcased bold artsy graphic designs on the runway for Spring/Summer 2014.  This was one of my favorite trends of the season.  The next challenge was how to incorporate this audacious trend into my wardrobe.


This is where Mood Fabrics comes in.  They have a beautiful selection of jersey prints that can be transformed into a great statement garment for the season.  Or if you are like me and want to add a little oomph to your wardrobe, you can start with a simple t-shirt using Simplicity 4076.  This is my TNT.  I've made the t-shirt view six times. With this print, I place the prominent images in the lower center front and back.  This t-shirt is a perfect match for this artsy print.

Mood jersey is top quality.  It has a soft hand and sews up beautifully.  It's a light weight jersey that can stand up to washing on the regular cycle.  No fading or pilling.  Great fabric all the way around.

This was part of one of my "easy" wardrobe pieces that I wore during my vacation in Jamaica last week.  I sewed it up in less than two hours, two days before vacation.  Pairing with white cropped pants was perfect for a stroll along the beach after breakfast.

This week, I paired it with my Sandra Betzina jeans, V7608.  Can you believe it?! We're still getting snow and temperatures in the 30's.

Like I said earlier it was difficult to select one designer or one trend to draw inspiration from.  Later, I will also share another post on the Spring/Summer 2014 designer challenge.

Happy Sewing!

  2. This top is a gorgeous inspiration piece! I have never sewn Mood jersey yet, but you sure make me want to!

  6. Really interesting fabric.

  7. Great combination of fabric and pattern, such a print doesn't need a complicated pattern. Beautiful top.

  8. Cenetta -

    You did a great job on this top. The trick in working with fabrics like this is making sure the one way design works for you. If you don't cut it right, the finished garment won't look right when you wear it. You did an excellent cutting job on this one - which makes it look so wonderful when you wear it.

    Can I say it again? GREAT JOB!!!
