My Attempts at Pattern designing from scratch...

Hi all,

So, two weeks have passed and I'm finally back on :) Uni has been so hectic that my poor little sewing machine been lookin' lonelier and lonelier.... UNTIL.... lol

My post about my design 100 project has come to fruition and I've finished the two major dress designs for it.
Yeah, I gave up after 3 attempts to draw legs on MS Paint lol

More coming on actual CONSTRUCTION next week...

Being a Busy, Busy Bee

Ohaiyo! Haven"t been on here for over a week, as am v. busy atm. Having to organise a screenplay and costumes is very time consuming - but it is, admittedly, rather fun. Looking forward to having some free time this weekend so that I'm not falling too far behind on all my side projects. I'll add some pics of the bloomers and teddy from a few weeks ago that I finished this week :D hopefully you'll have some feedback or something.

On a different note, looking forward to getting onto three new projects - a corselet and garter belt and pin-up bra from Anna Depew's Etsy store. the corselet is going to have a bra attached as well. it should be a bit of a fun challenge to integrate two patterns into one garment XD. Garter belt and bra will be in peacock blue satin and the corselet in peach satin XD. So wish me luck on those, and like I said, pics of other stuff to date should be up here on monday XD. Have a good weekend everybody

Loving Uni

I love university - I should have been there years ago...

I have a unit called The Design Experience 100. Our main focus this semester is to create a design for something  and them realise it... guess what media I'm going to use lolol.
I get to do a project on a designer who inspires me and my work.I chose... Colleen Atwood.

Say hello to my hero...

This amazing lady has been up for 9 academy awards, won 3 of those nominations, and is responsible for some of the films that inspired me to get into Costume Design. And so, my project is a dress and suit ensemble, and then a short 30 seconds of film displaying them.
 More soon about that. in the meantime, I'm just sewing up a cool Collette design for mini bloomers.

More later.
