A Vietnamese Inspired gown I designed and made using Draping techniques
Self drafted Maxi Dress pattern based on a RTW (Ready to Wear) garment
These dresses are my favourite go to dresses! I could live in this style 7 days a week… actually come to think of it I almost do hahaha
Ultimate Hourglass T-Shirt colour blocking using Vogue 8793
Ultimate T-Shirt using Vogue 8793
I needed something cool and comfortable for walking in so I made myself a pair of pants using Butterick 5655 and a top to match using Vogue 8822.
My first self draft wearable pattern for my fashion design course… happy to report for the practical & written assignment I go a HD (High Distinction)
Flower Power Hippy Chick top – Katherine Tilton Vogue 8691 pattern. I made a few changes to this pattern including adding a lace overlay to the bodice section.
Pavlova Wrap Top & Circle Skirt – I’m loving the look of this combination. The top is made from a black jersey knit fabric and the skirt fabric was a surprise gift from my hubby’s darling Nanna Shirley.
High Waisted Pencil Skirt with Boning… this one is my second Pencil Skirt and it has a high waistband with added boning and was the first time I’d sewn anything using boning and I love it.
Pencil skirt – This project was a sewing dare I was given and I’m so glad I took up the dare. The skirt actually started it’s life as the lining for the skirt and ended up being a skirt all of it’s own which I also lined. I’m really happy with the waistband on this skirt… for more pics click here or on the image below
Simplicity 2058 skirt – I love the colours in this fabric and the style of this skirt… makes me feel a little classy and a little sexy all rolled into one LOL
Hollyburn Skirt – Sewaholic Pattern – This one makes me feel kind of sporty
Tiramisu – the Cake Sewing Pattern – Tiramisu was like it was made for me as the fit was perfect without any pattern alterations.
Vogue 1027… this is such a comfortable dress. I made this dress with fabric my husband got me for Christmas 2012
Simplicity 2634 View F from the Khaliah Ali Collection
