So I've noticed that there are certain pieces in my wardrobe that seem to have a kind of optical illusion effect on the way different parts of my body look when I wear them - in a good way. This then inspired the thought that an entire line could be centered around a sort of trickery of the eye. My thought is that using seam placement, contrast stitching, color placement, fabric lay etc. could be put together in a way that would make someone with not much of a definable shape have a small waistline and hips, bring out some junk in the trunk, or give a little ooomph to a smaller chest. I'm talking cute, comfortable clothing that would let you be you but make you look your best without changing a thing about your shape. So...am I nuts or could this work? I already have a few patterns in mid-draft, with a test run sometime this winter. Please let me know what you think!

I think it's a very good idea! Everyone can use some help this way. Now if you can make the belly smaller and move everything up wards to the boobs I'd be first in line!  Wink

If I had a hammer, I'd wake up my neighbours.

That is a GREAT idea. Get a really catchy name and an attractive website and you'll do just fine. And you can actually get a lot of good ideas from swimsuits, since they're mostly designed to trick people.

Thanks for the input, and my specialty happens to be "enlarging" the bust area, if you will. Discovered that by accident. Now to get to work creating! =)
