One Garment, Lots of Looks

Whether you’re purchasing clothing or making a garment, it’s always important to think about the ways you can wear your clothing – especially when you’re investing money into expensive fabrics. Now there’s a way to expand the looks you create, convertible clothing! There are several ready-to-wear designs available for sewing inspiration: Max Studio’s 8-way tube top – the rouched silk allows you not just wear this as a top, but also a skirt and Calypso’s satin wrap dress. For a quick tutorial on making your own version of the Calypso, check out this tutorial available at rostitchery.
