The denim shirt

Here are the pictures I had promised to share…my first shirt..(This is a self drafted pattern from the chapter on shirts from H.J.Armstrong) It has a mannish appearance to it. I made the pattern as it is without alterations to the basic shape just to see how it would look, being my first shirt n […]

My first knit dress

Learning pattern drafting is hectic business. And somehow I don’t get to make as many complete items as I would like to.Its mostly working with muslin and making bits and pieces..It just takes soooo much time..Just before going to europe, I wanted to make some clothes to wear and one of them was a knit […]

Enchanter à Paris

Parissss….Never been more excited to visit a city. Its a city that grows on you, I think. For me, it held something exciting around every corner. In spite of my grumpiness at having to lug a backpack around, and of course having to walk (:D), a voice kept screaming in my head..”I’m in PAREEEEE”..I could’nt […]

Euro trip – part 2

Kniphal was my main destination point in Albert Cuypstraat, since its pretty famous n all, but I went into another shop called N&N fabrics, which had nice knits, cottons and home dec materials.  I bought these two home decor materials..would be really interesting for cushion covers..I don’t get such prints here, so I got pretty […]

Silk crepe No.2

This one is the second of the 4 colors I bought. This is a beautiful black, light weight silk crepe.. i decided to do a simple kimono sleeve blouse again, with the sleeve ending at elbow length. I stabilized the outline of the garment with silk organza as usual. I cut it in the bias […]

Silk crepe sewing frenzy

I recently went to a new fabric gallery opened on Commercial street (Bangalore). I saw amazing silks, silk crepes, light as air printed chiffons and lots and lots of other stuff. I immediately bought silk crepe in 4 different colors. Silk crepe is an amazing fabric, its so light and crisp and has a muted […]

Balms and bees

A few weeks ago, I decided to make my own lip balm and body butter. I have no idea what brought this on, but i needed to make a lip balm with no additives, so i can use it on my little girl. Her lips get a little flaky sometimes. I’ve also been looking for […]
