inspiration nation – SHOWPO

Just a quick post about a brand that I have recently discovered and which I am drawing worlds of inspiration from: SHOWPO. This brand is young, fun and very feminine and the clothes flattering and down right gorgeous. I stumbled across their page when Pia Muehlenbeck posted a photo of her wearing their clothes on her Instagram account.

New scissors, thread, pins, elastic, material…but no patterns. I know I should start by learning from existing patterns, but I have my own ideas.
