Mood Presents: The Animal Print Collection – Free Sewing Patterns

You stand in a metal jungle, towering trees made infantile by iron-wrought frames. Hum-drum haberdashery leaks from the seams of dressed-down silhouettes, neutral in color and unnoticed by the herds. In a sea of black, one hide stands apart, fluid yet taut. Simple in execution and exquisite in hand, the tailoring teems with top-tier trends. Your confidence coalesces with your creation’s crevices, a shining style among the awe-inspired onlookers. Powerful, sleek, and graceful, you make your way in the world, wild and wonderful.

You may not grace the runway, but you can embrace the catwalk in your day-to-day life with the natural styles that have made their way into designers’ hearts and sketchbooks. Animal prints are a new classic; zebra prints and cheetah skins stalking stylists, invading everything from business attire to athletic wear. Create wild styles and mix different animal prints, or stay chic with a simple silhouette made from an extravagant leopard spotted jacquard. Pair a giraffe printed button-up with a simple black suit to bring an animalistic power into business meetings, or hit the town with the gals in a myriad of dresses made from jungle cat inspired textiles. Keep up with the heat in the summer by lounging by the pool in a peacock-printed bathing suit, or chill out and warm up in a puffer coat lined with ocelot spots.

The Aspen Skirt

Shavonne sports the skirt from The Aspen Ensemble, fitted with a zipper. This sleek style is inspired by the runway, the zipper detailing coinciding with the reconstructed/deconstructed trend. Remove the long zipper to stick simply with the print, or add more for some over-the-top tailoring. Check out Mood’s new line of exclusive zippers, totally customizable and 100% you! Choose your length, color, and pull for a unique zipper that fits your design to a Z. Fashion a crop top of the same fabric to double down on the matching set style, or create the blouse from The Aspen Ensemble in a zebra print for an elegant ensemble.

The Alder Top

Brittany sports The Alder Top in a gorgeous silk print. Silk prints have been popping up all over, their fluid drape and immaculate prints catching the eye and holding it tight. Pair this variation of The Alder Top with a black faux leather pencil skirt for a fitted and fashionable silhouette perfect for first dates and 10 year anniversaries, or create one in white and pair it with some cheetah-printed cigarette pants.

The Nasrin Pants

Stephanie sports The Nasrin Pants in jacquard, with an alteration featuring a real front fly (following the steps from The Aster Pants). These powerful pants present a flashy fashion, fabricated from the most textural of textiles. Jacquard is quite popular with designers, as its full drape and tangible hand make it perfect for everything from big gowns to cocktail dresses. Utilize this jacquard to create The Zinnia Jacket and make it a matching set fit for New Years Eve parties or brunch in Brooklyn, or pair these top-tier trousers with a blouse to soften its ferocity.
