fall 2020 runway inspiration

I’m a pretty casual, simple girl when it comes to my style. I’m not a high-fashion enthusiast, but I still enjoy flipping through fashion show photos. While perusing the fall 2020 ready-to-wear runway looks from famous designers, I came across a few looks that could be recreated using Liesl + Co. patterns. Take a look, maybe you’ll be inspired!

Recreate the runway with these women's sewing patterns from Liesl + Co.

From left to right:

  1. Add some self-fabric covered buttons to the front of the Extra-Sharp Pencil Skirt to make your own version of this Fendi skirt.
  2. Swap out the Peter Pan collar from the Bistro Dress for a pointed collar, and you can recreate this Fendi dress.
  3. This leather sheath dress with laser-cut lace detail from Alexander McQueen would be a fun project to try making using the Rush Hour Dress + Blouse pattern.

  1. Add slanted patch pockets with flaps to a shortened Extra-Sharp Pencil Skirt to achieve this Gucci look.
  2. This intricate fishnet tank from Louis Vuitton could be hacked from the Breezy Blouse.
  3. I love the vibrant emerald green of these cropped Gucci trousers. Use the Hollywood Trousers pattern to make your own!

  1. Copy these camo-inspired Tom Ford trousers using the Montauk Trousers sewing pattern.
  2. This simple ensemble by Gucci could easily be made using the Neighborhood Sweatshirt + Hoodie and Hollywood Trousers patterns. Make a dickey using the Peter Pan collar from the Bistro Dress, or draft your own.
  3. Choose a blingy knit and recreate this standout skirt from Louis Vuitton using the Kensington Knit Skirt pattern.

My favorite pieces in these collages are the yellow Fendi skirt and the trousers/sweatshirt Gucci ensemble. That last one in particular has my gears turning for fall. Did anything catch your fancy?

    A piece I’ve seen (in some variations), and would love to make, is a loose-fitting, slight-drop-waist shirt dress like this beauty https://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/spring-2020-ready-to-wear/margaret-howell/slideshow/collection#2 by designer Margaret Howell.

    Cute ideas! I like the big pockets on the pencil skirt 🙂

    Just changing up some buttons, a collar shape or the fabric makes a whole new look. It just shows how versatile and stylish Liesl’s patterns are.
