Inspiration: Primark Spring 2011

Primark Spring 2011 via calvintage.
Wow, I love this collection so much. Everything looks so fresh and new after gray and black dominant winter collections.

I am inspired by the top left dress, and hoping that I will be able to find similar fabric to make a dress like that sometime!
I also like how conservative and classy these clothes are - the neckline is higher and those pink and beige pleated skirts have moderate length. It seems a bit hard to pull off the below knee length skirt, but I certainly want to try this Spring.

Wide leg pants are in my to-sew list as well. I think Bella pattern from Burdastyle fits the bill. I already have pattern downloaded and cut out. Unfortunately high waisted design is not really working for my pregnant body, so I have to wait for a bit until I give birth!

I've been seeing that Primark dress (top left) everywhere here in the UK magazines. It's only £17-£18 GBP ($27-29 USD), however having shopped in their stores quite a bit over the years I CAN say that their quality, fit & workmanship leave a lot to be desired LOL! So, they are best for inspiration (& they do come up with some really nice styles etc.) because even a novice like me can often produce something of a better fit & finish that Primark :)

Hi Chie,
Yup - Primark don't sell anything online. Basically, they have soooo many new & different styles arriving in to their stores each week that everything sells out too quickly! The queues for the cash desk can be very long & tiring sometimes (I'm glad I've given up shopping in there LOL!).

(P.S. Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog :)!
