How-to-Sew-Runway-Details-Carven-1-Racing Stripe

Can you replicate these sporty sewing details? Absolutely!! One look from the Carven Spring 2015 ready-to-wear runway will give you clues on how to do it!


You have two options to get this look and need three solid colors total: two neutrals (black and white) plus one color OR two contrasting colors (think your favorite sports team) plus black or white.

Try running a band with a center stripe down the center of an A-line or sheath dress. If you’re feeling it, you could try your hand at using pleather!


A duo-color detail like the snakeskin pocket plackets shown here can amp up the color play.

Just put your hair up into a ponytail, slip on simple shoes to accessorize, and you’re done.
