The Fashion artist

I was reading about Hussein Chalayan’s collections and i did get round eyed at what can be done with a piece of fabric. In his collection called  “Inertia”, the dresses looked like they were being sucked by something..they were streaming backwards..(see pic) Its amazing..i never did like avant garde, because some are just that for […]


Its been a month of non-posting…but i have been seriously sewing though…i’ve completed princess seams and panel stylelines. I made a dress with princess seam to the armhole.

I used a ready made pattern mostly because i wanted the sewing instructions in order to finish it properly.  There are a few issues with the jacket actually. I ended up with the lining much shorter than the body […]

The no sew week
