Fabric Patterns and Dressing For Your Body Type | Textile Designs | Shopping For Fabric Type


In this week’s YouTube video, I’m going to
share with you three key ingredients to a great pattern for you. I hope these ingredients
inspire you to think about your pattern choices and whether or not they are in harmony with
you and the style you’re hoping to project. So without further ado, let’s jump to ingredient
number one. Do linear patterns or curvy patterns work
best for you? The way to determine this is to look at yourself in the mirror and assess
your facial shape, the shape of your features, the texture of your hair and your overall
body silhouette. If you see more angles, this may mean linear
patterns are best for you. These include patterns such as stripes and plaids. If you see more curves, this may mean a pattern
with a little more curve to them are better for you. These include patterns such as florals,
paisley and polka dots. Consider where you’re locating the pattern
on your body. If a pattern is concentrated in a particular area of your body, that means
when somebody looks at you their eye will be likely drawn to look at that area. If there’s
an area of your body that you’re hoping not to draw attention to, that might not be such
a good thing. So for example if I was wearing these pants,
the eye would be more drawn to look at the lower part of my body. If I was wearing this
top, the eye would likely be drawn to look at my mid section. If I was wearing this dress,
because the same pattern is diffused from head to toe the eye isn’t inclined to look
at a particular area of my body. And in fact because it’s the same pattern head to toe,
it may visually increase my height. If you have finer features, finer texture
to your hair and overall bone structure, this may mean a finer weight to your pattern is
best. If you have stronger features, a stronger
hair texture and overall stronger bone structure, a stronger weight to your pattern may be best. All of these are just guidelines and there
are great reasons to break guidelines sometimes. However, as always I recommend your pattern
choices to be in alignment with your seasonal color analysis results. Here’s a sample of
my best colors. I hope this video has inspired you to think
of your pattern choices.
