I took some photos while making my latest dress, appropriately named The Paris Dress for its french blueprint pattern inside. Final photos of the dress will be up soon!
So, I’m about three steps away from finishing this dress (zipper, inside lining, hem) AND I’m torn on what type of zipper to use, brass or full black. The brass zipper has kinda been one of the signature traits of my dresses, but this one has other fun details (like print on the shoulders).
What’s your pick?? Which do you think works better?
If you haven’t noticed, people are talking about Pinterest like woah. I kinda sat on my account for a bit, slowly adding things (and not really excited to have another addition to my list of pretty blog addictions), but lately I’ve been totally into it. There are just too many awesome/inspiring things in the world and it’s so fun to see what people find.
Take a look at my pinterest page to see what stands out to me amidst the millions of handmade/design/art pages I peruse. I’ve got a board for dresses I like and another couple for things that inspire me and my designs. If you’d like, follow along for the ride, and let me know what you’re pinning!
Let the pretty begin…. (and here’s a taste of some of my finds)
Autumn-lynn looking smashing (and adorably attentive!) in The Tribal Dress at her PhD Defense Seminar yesterday! AL gave a great talk and looked awesome while she did it. Congrats Doc!
An insightful video into the detailed process for making one Chanel jacket. It’s great to share the full garment creation process with the world, from fitting to measuring to cutting and hand sewing. It is a tedious process for sure that demands focused attention and dedicated time. I have to admit though, I’m still not 100% convinced Chanel still makes each jacket by hand. Then again, at $1500 a pop, they better be!
