Sewing Fever

Sunday, April 18, 2010
I have been swimming in ideas lately and it feels wonderful!  Last night around 10 p.m., I decided to look through my spare fabric and I came across this gorgeous vintage fabric.  The best part is, I found it for FREE in a bin at my fashion school almost 6 months ago.  I had been dying to create a flirty, vintage-inspired summer dress with a cut-out back and last night was my chance!  With "sew" many ideas, I just had to whip out my machine and create, create, create.  After six hours of cutting, measuring, pinning, and bobbin-winding, my vision was complete.  It turned out just how I had imagined it!

The length is perfect for my height and it is very form-fitting.  The cut-out back is an innocent and modest way of showing some skin for the hot, summer days.  Most importantly, I try to incorporate lace into many of my designs.  It is the signature element in my pieces.  As I tell most people, I am inspired by so many people, places, artists, and musicians, but I have four key ideas that I always draw from:   black, purple, lace, and butterflies---these four ideas describe me as a designer and you can definitely see the influence it has made in my pieces.

Meet my "Wendla Romper"

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

I won't say rompers are my NEW favorite thing,
because I have yearned for one for about 3 years now.
I could never find one that fit the length of my body, though.
This is the year! I have had such great luck with finding rompers and I now own four!
They are all very flattering and make my legs look longer and thinner!
Who doesn't want that? Buy a romper!

P.S. Blogger is being weird, which explains the choppy formatting.
