Blog lovin'

So, I feel I have really been neglecting my blog... And I have. Sorry, Blog :( but you're hard to keep updating!I forget you even exist sometimes, and I already have a book to write in... Although I have been neglecting that also. Goodbye, seven :(

In other news - my capsule collection is coming along swimmingly (get it - SWIMmingly LORL!)
I'm up to number 70-something in the design process and I've only done 1 and a half groups :D I'm going to have all the sketches DONE BY WEDNESDAY 26TH OF MAY... I hope.
Also This Thursday is out last lesson with Gillian (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo!!!!!) and I'm going to have my ENTIRE SWIMSUIT DONE (EXCEPT FOR MAYBE THE MACRAME PART) BY THURSDAY 27 OF MAY!

The horror has gone. It's become the darkness.

I love this song! Even though it's a love song, I feel it fits with my concept and its so sad and emotional I want to cut my head off...


And then I made 2 more bra cup toiles experiementing with where the cup come up to on the mid section. One this one the cup sits out of the top - so the top edge is not one smooth line. but is broken by the cup jutting out the top. Gettit?

To this! I added more allowance of the lower edge so the bra cup fits in nicely.

First toile. Suuuuper dodgey! there wasn't enough room to sew in the bra cups properly so I changed my pattern...

I elasticised the top edge then unpicked it and put it through my favourite machine - the binder instead!

All sewn up. (back and front) My very first pattern pieces I made with Gillian's help. (back and front)

We can not break bread with you.

Wednesday Adams.

Inspo for my capsule collection

Head dresses: why do I not have one?!

She looks as if she's at Woodford :)


I don't know who this it, but she is wonderful!

Muahahaha! Devendra Banhart, I love. Somebody once said he is hobo in an i-look-like-i-stink-but-i-don't kind of way. I think this is a great little tid-bit of inspo! I want my collection to be hippie/hoboboho/nomad in a chic enough to not stink way.
