Entries in my work (49)
I'm so excited to finally have a shop update again! and I'm also excited because I made the switch from etsy to bigcartel. So you can find the link to my new shop here. Here's a little preview of the pieces and following this post I will blog a few lookbook photos. You can also find more information about each garment here. I'm putting the final touches on each piece and they will be available beginning June 14th (12pm EST).
I'm still here, I promise. I just wrapped up classes and feel awesome. Summer is officially here -- I'm not in complete relaxation mode though, the hub and I just kicked off our busy wedding season and are pretty much going strong until the fall. But trust me, that's great news.
The past semester at Parsons was so rewarding and I can't wait to experiment this summer on my own. I'm trying to not be overly ambitious but I'm hoping to open my shop back up soon, yay! Here's a small peek of a few things I've been up to...
Right before I posted my previous entry about navy -- my mom, coincidentally, stuck two blue fabrics in the mail to me as a surprise. I've been so busy with school, I haven't had much of a chance to sew anything for myself lately so I used this past week to make myself a navy spring shirt. It could use a few tweeks but I'm pretty happy with the outcome.
If you are interested in the fabrics, they are for sale here.
I've decided to start making my party skirt in a more affordable, 100% cotton fabric. But because there is only one of me and so many different sizes to make, I'm now taking orders with the following options:
a) Fabric Colors: blue, plum, and black
The fabric is a pre-washed 100% cotton making it soft enough for winter and light enough for summer. It will be fully gathered at the waist with the capability of twirling :) Most importantly, it will have pockets!
b) Pom Applique
There are two options for the decorative pom: same color pinwheel poms or contrasting frayed edge poms.
The sizing has been measured to be worn as waist level. Since it is a fully gathered skirt, the waist is the only specific fit. All skirts measure approximately 19inches from top of waistband to bottom of hem.
Pricing: All skirts are made to order and will sale for $72 w/ free shipping.
Holidays: If you'd like to have your skirt in time for the holidays, last day to order is Dec 12th to allow for production and shipping.
Last year I made this dress. I never quite enjoyed the fit of it and yesterday while I was going through my closet, I got the idea to re-fashion it. I cut off the top of the dress, serged a rolled hem on the top raw edge, and added a black cotton band of fabric at the bottom. Ta-da! It's terribly cute but as I assessed the mound of skirts I already have, I decided that I could stand to part with it and have decided to sell it in my shop.
It's a size small with an elastic waste -- the main fabric is a black/white seer-sucker weave and like I said, the black section is a cotton. It's super comfy and I could see it going easily between seasons. Check it out here.
I never mentioned the pleated denim skirt I added to my shop awhile back. It's made with a stretch denim and has a pintucked pleated detail on the front. It also zips from behind and is a size 2. Check it out here.
And then I have one more Party Skirt in a size 6 at sale price. Check it out here.
I have been saying for months I would attempt to make the hub a collared-shirt and this weekend I finally did! It was so nice to be able to fit someone besides myself -- I'm pretty happy with the results and so is the hub. I used the Simplicity 5366 pattern, and by the way, just like the men's section is smaller in retail stores so is the sewing pattern section.
