Athletic Inspired Fashion: Moodboard


A couple weeks ago I published which pattern I was going to sew for my next Meg’s Magazine Mash Up. For each Mash Up I usually prepare an inspiration board otherwise known as a moodbard. It helps me brainstorm and gain insight into the style of my garment I am preparing on making. Moodboards really help me focus in and compile inspirational images together that aid my new garment design. Check out our new Moodboard course so you can create your own!
